What was the most valuable thing Actor Academy has helped you with?

What accomplishments you are proud of since your time with Actor Academy?
Suraya : My biggest accomplishment after taking the class, getting cast in a film for the first time, a short film, but still a film and also learning to trust myself, especially with scripts. I mean, in class with Christina, I was doing script work and I didn't trust myself and like, she was like, you know, the lines and I was like, yeah, I kind of do. And so I've learned to trust myself.
What makes Actor Academy different from other acting schools?
Suraya : Actors Academy is different from any other acting class because you're learning about the industry and about acting, every little thing in between. But you're also learning from each other because it has this online platform where we can all share and sort of just learn from each other. And I think that's just amazing. It's kind of one of my favorite things about it is the online platform.
What would you say to someone looking to join Actor Academy?
Suraya : You wanna be an actor, you don't know where to go. You want all the tools just do it, honestly don't hesitate, take the chance and do it.
