Mya Toland

Age: 17 yrs & 3 mths

Hi! I’m Mya and I have had a strong passion for the arts from a very young age. I began attending drama school at 7 years old playing lead roles such as Bugsy Malone in Bugsy Malone, Bernardo in West Side Story, Connie Wong in A Chorus Line, Cha Cha in Grease and many more lead roles in multiple pantomimes, as well as an issue based theatre piece that toured around Ireland. I am a very confident and extroverted teen and I surround myself with my fellow creatives, constantly getting inspiration and motivation from my friends who also desire to achieve a career in the arts. In school, I resulted in A*’s in Drama and Art, which I have continued on at a level, as well as Moving Image Arts. I have had a strong interest in cinematography and directing, which I have fair experience in and I have taught myself how to edit. I am a very talented singer and have performed multiple gigs and have a youtube channel with over 18k viewers, which I do covers on and I currently have my own song ‘narcissist’. I also have a good bit of modelling experience.
