I competed at the World Championships of Performing Arts in July 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. I became the silver medalist for the senior models and won several scholarships for acting to the New York Film Academy & the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts! My time in LA was an amazing experience. Not just because the weather was gorgeous and we stayed at the beautiful Westin Bonaventure hotel, but the actual experience of the competition was amazing! I met so many performers from all different walks of life and gained a bunch of friends as well as made connections and networked with a lot of industry people. I am currently working, saving, and planning on making my big move to LA and use the contacts that I've made later this year. WCOPA was a great experience and I would recommend it to any and every performer!
