About Me

IMG_4466.JPG

Born and raised in Santiago de Chile, Amara graduated from the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama Acting Class of 2021. 

Growing up surrounded in the Television world back home, thanks to her mother, there was something about Acting that always intrigued Amara. 

As a curious young girl, with too many careers to explore, Acting was the space where she was allowed to dream, and explore with no boundaries. As she grew up Amara developed an interest for Social Justice, coming close to studying Law! However, once she realized the importance of the arts when it comes to making change in society she was set!  

Next thing you know she was embarking on a journey from Santiago, Chile all the way to Pittsburgh, PA to study Acting. 

After graduation Amara had her film debut in the movie Cha Cha Real Smooth, which premiered in the 2022 Sundance Film Festival where it won the Audience Award- U.S Dramatic Competition.

Since then Amara has been involved in TV, Film and Theatre projects in Santiago, Chile. Including National TV Series "Como La Vida Misma" and the monologue "Age is a Feeling" which was directed by acclaimed Chilean theatre director Cristian Plana, and premiered in Teatro Zoco September of this year. 

As someone who grew up surrounded by people of different backgrounds and cultures, she aims to tell stories that inspire and empower others.
