Amelia Pauly hails from Chicago and has dreamed of becoming an actor since her youngest days. Over the past few years, she has played leading roles in a number of short films, and has appeared in TV and print advertising campaigns for some of America's most prominent companies. Recently, she has sharpened her singing skills by working with a vocal coach for the past year. In addition to being a travel volleyball and softball player (pitcher!), Amelia also stars in the classroom. She is a straight-A student, has won the President Obama Award for Academic Excellence, and has recently been selected for the National Junior Honor Society. Amelia also performs community service for Corazón Community Services (as a junior health ambassador) and the Berwyn CARES educational advocacy group.
