In the words of Adrea: “Mi bless, as far as mi can memba, I have always had a knack for acting. It is a natural born talent that God has bestowed and for that I am grateful”. She gives credit to her formative years at Convent of Mercy Alpha Academy where she was a member of the Drama Club. During these years she further realized her true passion for acting. Her stage debut was at the Little Theatre in Kingston Jamaica where she took part in the play “Girls Just want to Have Fun”.
When she migrated to Canada in the 1990’s she became a member of the Bramalea Secondary Drama Club. While at Bramalea she wrote and directed the School’s first Black History Production. It was well received by staff and students alike. She received standing ovation and received the coveted Student of the Month Award. Her love for the Arts led her to pursue a Degree in Radio and Television Broadcasting at Ryerson Polytechnic University.
Her other works include: commercial for Victoria Mutual, performance in various plays and has had the pleasure of writing, producing and directing various Black History Productions. In 2010, she made her Canadian stage debut in “African Women Are as Strong as the Baobab” that was showcased at the Berkeley Street Theatre in Toronto.
