    Hi, I’m Megan Parra. I am 18 years old and my height is 5’3. Im hispanic and i live in Houston, Texas. I want to be casted because acting is my passion. I’ve always had a love for cinema and acting. To me acting is all I know and I can even mimick accents and it has become second nature. Just hearing someone with accent makes me want to talk like them. I don’t have professional training but I promise I won’t disappoint. I’m an only child, so growing up alone with parents on the borderline of poverty, cinema is all I have. I’ve seen countless number of movies and TV shows. As a child, acting was my escape from my reality and now I want make my passion a reality.
