    I always had a passion for the arts and started my career as an actor, by producing my own written works. I am a recent gradated of Empower school of acting and have acted in various plays and films. I am a reliable person and I understand the difficulties of producing as well as performing. My unique style will make me perfect for quirky roles, or the girl next door type. I also have experience in care work so I will be good in caring roles as well. I am not afraid to learn new skills and bring my best to a role.
