Shavana Clarke is a born and raised New Yorker, who will be graduating from the University of Connecticut May 2017 with a BFA in Acting. Shavana was bit with the performing bug at a very young age, when her parents decided to make her into a competitive, little pageant princess. However, she fell in love with acting at her local church, where she often participated in the theatrical productions. This love grew all throughout high school before she finally realized that this is what she wanted to pursue in college.
Shavana loves telling stories of different people and speaking to society through her work. She hopes to not only entertain but also spark people's curiosity of the world around them.
Apart from acting, Shavana enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, thrift shopping, blogging, baking, ice skating, and relaxing with a glass of red wine.
