Jeannie was one of our earliest participants in the High Flyers program and has been attending BAFTA events and programs for over four years. She has participated in the BAFTA-NYFA Filmmaking Program multiple times, has received scholarships to the New York Film Academy Advanced Film Program and has worked as an Intern at the BAFTA Los Angeles office. She is now focused on learning the craft of acting and pursuing a career in acting.
Her idols are Taraji P. Henson and Tyler Perry. Always a leader and a commanding figure in our Outreach program, Jeannie can also see herself as a motivational speaker. She wants to be a voice for the voiceless and tell real stories about the unique problems facing her generation. Jeannie attended the 2015 and the 2016 Britannia Awards, where she had the opportunity to meet Samuel L. Jackson and Jodie Foster.
