I am very happy to introduce today’s lovely Meet the Cast member, Cynthia Bastidas, who comes to us from the acting side of the fence:
Cynthia Bastidas was born in the Imperial Valley desert in California. After graduating from UC Davis with a degree in Community Development she moved to San Francisco where she wrote countless business and marketing plans for immigrant entrepreneurs in need of start up capital. That was the extent of her writing career.
Seven years ago her pursuit for acting training brought her to New York where she studied at HB Studio and recently received her MFA Acting degree from Brooklyn College, CUNY. She has performed on stage off Broadway and has done extensive commercial and voiceover work in both English and Spanish.
Theater and acting has exposed her to other creative outlets and is now venturing into writing. Cynthia is grateful to the organizers of Listen to Your Mother for allowing her to share her story and feels humbled to be working alongside so many talented and prolific writers.
