Sabrina Aman is an Eritrean American actress, born in Virginia, raised in Qatar and whose parents are Eritrean. She is a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual up and coming actress in Los Angeles. She comes from a very loving and supportive family of 5 that instilled in her love, respect and integrity.
Her passion for acting began at the age of 6, but coming from a conservative background, she was encouraged to let go of her dream and attend college in order to pursue a more stable career. To make her parents proud, she completed her B.A. in Communications and Public Relations and began working at The World Bank headquarters in Washington, D.C for a few years. While working there, she couldn’t help but become involved in the arts and entertainment side of The World Bank, in which people noticed her talent and creativity. She also was noticed by many modeling agents for her unique look and hence became a model at the age of 18.
After years of dance, flourishing as a model, and working at The World Bank, Sabrina left behind a supportive family of 5 to make her own way in the Golden Coast. It didn’t take but mere weeks for Sabrina to capture the attention of some of the top casting directors in Los Angeles. Her fluency in Arabic, Tigrigna and English and her ethnically ambiguous look paralleled with splendor quickly became assets to her acting skills. After attending some of LA’s top acting schools and participating in some of the industry’s most rigorous workshops; Sabrina quickly networked herself to bringing her craft into the industry’s limelight.
After a long-walked road, and living in areas of hardship and deficiency, Sabrina hopes to one day merge her love of acting as a public figure bringing awareness to the much witnessed hardships of her own life. Her goal is to encourage young women to overcome the life’s hurdles and the pessimistic chains that might be shackling them. Having broken the cycle of her own despairs in life, this young actress hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams.
