Anja was born in Southern California but spent most of her life in the entertainment capital of the world: Las Vegas, Nevada. Growing up with musician parents, music and performance had a huge influence on her.
Anja’s first dream was to become a singer. After being in choirs as a child, she decided to pick up the cello, bass, and guitar. Loving the feeling of performing on stage, she explored another interest of hers: acting, and with that passion came multiple opportunities to perform in theater at school and even being hand chosen to act as a witness for the American Bar Association in a makeshift legal case.
Setting those hobbies aside to pursue academics first, after graduating from the International Baccalaureate Program in high school, she went on to earn a bachelor’s degree at the University of Nevada, Reno.
It was not until finishing school when she was able to pursue her passions full time and do what she truly wanted to do. After being discovered by fashion photographers in South Korea while studying abroad, she got her first taste of being in front of the camera and loved it. She now continues to pursue her dream of acting.
Anja currently lives in Los Angeles, California and works with fashion photographers and performs in acting gigs that demonstrate her love for the art. When she is not modeling or filming, she spends her time on the craft that she loves the most: music composition.
