Chenay graduated from Stephens College 2012 with a BFA (acting emphasis).

“My passion for the arts started at a young age. I began at a dance studio called “Center of Dance” where I danced for 16 years. I mostly concentrated on hip-hop and jazz. Once I got to high school, I joined the show choir for 4 years and was also in countless plays and musicals. Then, I attended Stephens College in which I learned valuable acting knowledge and received a BFA (acting emphasis). It pushed me creatively more than I’ve ever been pushed. A major influence in my training stemmed from the summer program I attended at Lake Okoboji, Iowa. We did 9 shows in 10 weeks resulting in earning a 4 year degree in 3 years. We also had a 6 week intensive program on campus providing me with many creative opportunities. After college, I took a 6 week voice-over intensive course to improve my knowledge and skills in voice acting. I have also become a member of a music group called Mulattic. We have performed at various venues for the past 6 months and we are very passionate about what we do. Not only have I been singing and acting, I have also done multiple photo shoots for major companies. I recently did a photo shoot for Coleman presenting their new airbeds as well as some catalog covers. I also did a shoot for Shae Homes for their housing development brochures. Modeling is something I really enjoy and I would love to continue to expand in that area of my art as well. Throughout all my experiences I’ve gained many skills and I aim to keep building upon them. I hope to expand on my success in my music group as well as an individual. In the future I hope to be part of a record label and expand my talent as a voice over actress. With all this being said, anything to do with the arts or entertainment I want to be a part of. In order to keep building myself as an artist I crave being around other creative people. Cathexis Talent inspires me to stay motivated to keep chasing my dreams, and I want to continue to build myself as well as others creatively.”-Chenay
