Hey there! I am an MFA trained (A.C.T.) actor who would be happy to read for your upcoming self-tape, audition, or class scene. I love to see my fellow actors succeed!

I bring a calm, grounded energy and will provide an encouraging, non-judgmental space that allows you to do your thing with ease. Let’s have fun with it!

I'm great with British dialects, West African dialects (particularly Ghanaian), and I speak conversational French.

Venmo: afuab11

Afua (she/they) is a first-generation Ivorian and Ghanaian-American actress from Gaithersburg, Maryland. A graduate of American Conservatory Theater’s M.F.A. Acting program, she most recently appeared as Rain in Charly Evon Simpson's 'it's not a trip it's a journey' at Round House Theatre.

Afua’s travels and unique multi-cultural background have greatly influenced her exploration of black identity within the complexity of the first-generation experience. She seeks to amplify the voices of women of the African diaspora and tell the untold stories of her West African ancestors.
