A bit about Amandla

Since I can remember I have always loved television and films. I had pursued acting on-and-off until my second year in college. That year I decided to give all of me to acting. After graduating from Cal State Long Beach, Theatre Performance: Acting Emphasis BA '14 and then right after UC Irvine Acting MFA '17; I am constantly trying to find ways to prepare myself and get better and have fun doing it.
