Meet Alaysha White

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alaysha White.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Alaysha. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My parents always told others she’s going to be a STAR. As a little girl, I would always say “I’m going to be a superstar” “I want to be in movies”! I was always involved in my church plays and school plays, I would always shine bright on the stage each and every time I perform. In 2015, I have seen an ad for Barbizon USA for Acting and modeling auditions, with the boost of my parents really pushing me to go for it. I nailed the audition to be selected to attend Barbizon courses to soon audition in front of several agents. And soon after that, my career jumped off, I traveled to Cayman Mexico for a competition for acting in which I did my commercial I made up advertising “beauty and beyond hair care products” I was runner-up in my division and that landed me to sign a contract to an agency.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My acting career has been amazing! But some roads had its bumps here and there, I was feeling the toughest part about the industry, walking in with confidence to an audition and being denied. Being told “No” right in your face was hard and put my confidence on a pedestal. Some agents made promises that never came with results that I was depending on. I thought I couldn’t do it without an agent, but I started doing everything on my own, and I must say It was worth it. But overall, I made sure I stayed strong and to keep striving towards success. I kept faith in myself and put passion and dedication in everything I do no matter what others thought of me or my craft. It taught me to prove myself more and go harder for what I believe in.

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I’m known as an actress. My acting career has been a complete success, I accomplished more then what I thought I would. I’m so thankful and honored to have my family support through everything I do. I was an extra for Tyler Perry Nobody’s fool (2018), The Walking Dead (2018), OWNs Network show titled Ambitions and Green-leaf (2019). I was a co-star for a Facebook series titled “Double Take” starring Nene Leakes (2018). I plan to keep striving and eventually land a speaking role. I’m most proud of working full-time and plus balancing my career with acting. Also, I have a new project coming up soon and can’t wait until I am able to debut it. I’m truly blessed to be able to accomplish as much as I have with my struggles and not allowing it to stop me. I believe my personality, professionalism, and high spirits is what sets me apart from others. I truly believe in myself and I can do anything I put my mind too.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite part about my childhood is when I did my first skit in the church as an angel, and my wing fell off. I was panicking, but I went off topic and started dancing and singing. Distracting the congregation about my wing. And made the crowd laugh. I thought to myself “Yes, I’m built for this”
