Last year, Alessandra was in Bated Breath Theatre Company's production of Chasing Andy Warhol in which she received rave reviews for.
Alessandra's passion for theatre comes from the need for representation in the arts. As she fell in love with performing as a child, she didn't see much of herself or her people reflected in media. As a Latine actress, she wants to give a voice to her community. Alessandra believes theatre is a powerful art form that can truly help make a change. She loves the stage, but also has passions and works in film/tv, voiceover, and educational theatre for kids.
