acting

Amna grew up intending on studying astrophysics and marine biology. When she took a Meisner acting class to fulfill an elective requirement in high school, her trajectory changed for good. By the age of seventeen she had studied multiple disciplines of acting, led several stage plays, spearheaded her own not-for-profit improv troupe which toured The Bay Area, and gotten acceptance to NYU Tisch School of the Arts. While in New York, Amna studied at Stonestreet Studios for Film and Television, T. Schreiber, and Playwrights Horizons off-Broadway. She acted in over a dozen plays in her time at New York, and spent summers studying and teaching acting around the country and world. In 2016, she traveled with Dramatic Adventure Theatre to The Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland, where she taught Romani children performing arts, and later devised a play about The Romani Genocide which toured Slovakia and was later picked up off-Broadway. In 2017 she traveled to Pakistan to teach performing arts in orphanages. She continues this work today. Since returning to California in 2020, Amna has landed lead roles in five feature films, several award-winning shorts, and numerous commercials, all while creating an impressive producing, screenwriting, and directing portfolio.
