Meet influencer & Actress Elysia Rotaru

One to Watch. Katherine Castro

  How long have you been an actress? Have you always wanted to be an actor? I've been an actor for about 20 years. The acting wasn't my first desire.

Right at that moment, I knew I wanted to be an actor.  What is the most recent acting role that you're super proud of and why? I'm very proud of Someday. It's a story with a lot of heart and anyone can relate to it. Everyone that has seen it gets pulled in and fully...

Photography:Hana Haley interview @ouchmagazineny / Rhonda McKnight 1. How long have you been a recording artist? Who discovered you?    I started recording the summer after I graduated high school. Fun fact: I didn’t even apply to any colleges because I was set on a performing career! The first place I ever recorded original music was at CBS studios.
