She went on to do Drama in English in College and decided it was time to go study in the city of her Dreams : New York!
There she took on the Acting conservatory program at the New York Film Academy where she learned the Meisner Technique. She also had the chance to study Shakespeare with published author David Vando and scene study with Actors Studio member and AADA faculty member Zenon Kruszelnicki.
