In being accepted for the American Musical and Dramatic Academy College and Conservatory for the Performing Arts BA Program, which starts July 2, 2012, I will be utilizing skills I have developed for 5 years as a Gymnast as well as working for 5 years as a child Actress. I will also be utilizing knowledge I have acquired from The Design’s School of Cosmetology and Special Effects Hair & Photography Studio. I have acquired an in-depth and diverse knowledge about this field that I hope to fully utilize and perfect at AMDA. My extensive experience working both behind and in front of the camera includes: TV (Power Ranger’s Lost Galaxy and Mr. Show with Bob and David), Commercials (Coca Cola, Toys ”R” Us, AT&T, Orange Telecommunication, Silhouette Oldsmobile, & Blue Cross/Blue Shield), Print . The famous Peggy Sirota shot all print ads & the AT&T Commercial. In addition Battle of the Salons, Central Coast California – 2009, were we took second place will enable me to bring a full range of skills to AMDA.
Through the development of these skills I hope to expand my ability to target high profile jobs and enter into new markets.

Over the course of my career, I have gained important skills in effective communication and collaboration. In 1994 I started Gymnastics at Broadway Gymnastics in Santa Monica, California and continued in the program till 1999. I made it to level 5 and competed in local competitions. This gave me a sense of discipline and dedication. In particular, during the five years in which I worked as an Actress, I learned highly effective team-building and team-management skills. I believe my experiences as a gymnast and in working as an Actress in a collaborative set-up as well as a student at Design’s School of Cosmetology and further as an employee of Special Effects Hair & Photography Studio, as well as a waitress for Overland Stage Western Steakhouse, TGI Friday’s Restaurant, and Barney’s Beanery Restaurant gives me a valuable understanding of work place dynamics and relationships.
