“Drama was my favorite class in high school. At 17, I wanted to get more training, and fortunately, I was accepted into the Identity School of Acting in the UK. I trained there for a term and was able to pay for my upkeep as a retailer at Primark.

“My parents are first-generation immigrants, which means, formal education is a must, so I was skeptical about studying Drama as an undergrad. Although I loved acting, I thought of it as a hobby and studied Law instead. I performed on stage in a lot of theatre plays, watched a lot of films, and read articles on filmmaking.”
