A graduate of Howard University, LaQuis was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She was a founding member of the Hip Hop Theatre Junction and toured extensively with the inaugurating play Rhyme Deferred (i.e. National Black Theatre Festival-NC; The Kennedy Center-DC; The Nuyorican Poet’s Café- NY, etc.). LaQuis loves to study creative writing and various performance styles. As a result of her history as a teaching artist within various non-profit organizations in Chicago, LaQuis recently finished her first book- a guided journal for youth personal and spiritual development. Believing in the power of positive guidance and examples for youth, she works as a mentor at her former high school. In addition to acting, she enjoys live music and comedy shows, metaphysics, traveling, and learning to DJ. She’s very grateful to explore the next levels of her career with Gray Talent.
