My name is Cayla Berejikian. I am a New York-based actress, writer, and teaching artist. I trained as an actor at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and Stonestreet Studios while attending New York University, where I also studied psychology and film production. I have also trained at The Barrow Group and HB Studio.
Since late 2021, I have accrued screen acting credits on a variety of independent projects and three feature films. I began writing for the stage in 2018. Since then, I have written and directed several original plays for festivals in New York City. Currently, I am co-writing a feature film and producing a short that I wrote.
As a growing artist, I strive to maintain a playful and curious attitude in all areas of life. This philosophy influences my work as a teaching artist. I have created, modified, and implemented drama and screen-acting curricula for children of all ages. Rather than solely emphasizing craft or technique, I also focus on developing each child's creative intuition. My goal is to help young people strengthen their natural curiosity and build trust in themselves.
