your frequently asked questions, answered!
🌏 What's your ethnicity?
I identify as Black and Filipino. According to my DNA results via 23AndMe: I am 51% Asian, 36% Sub-Saharan African, and 14% European. My dad's family is Louisana Creole. My mom's family is indigenous Filipino and I am ethnically Igorot.
🎭 how did you start acting?
I first signed with a boutique talent agency to audition for commercials. Then, I told my agent that I was also interested in television and film. They signed me theatrically, and I started taking acting classes. I have since left that agency, and am now represented by APA.
🎬 how do i find an agent?
If you are a beginner or aspiring actor, I highly recommend checking out 'Self-Management For Actors' by Bonnie Gillespie.
🇵🇭 have you ever been to the philippines?
Yes! In fact, I used to live and go to school there :)
✈️ where else have you lived?
Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia, Montana, Japan, Philippines, Texas, and California. Basically, I've only stayed in one place for around 1-2 years before having to move again. Since I am a "military brat", I don't have an actual hometown but I claim the city of Long Beach (CA) because I went to high school there and lived there for seven years...that's the longest I've ever stayed in one place!
