Past News



Shalimar Malimban drove thousands of miles across country, surviving torrential downpours, scorching heat, and four dollars per gallon to pursue her dreams in the big city – Hollywood. That would make for a remarkable story, but alas, I am a Los Angeles native. In college, I was a part of the Forensics Speech and Debate team, where I won the title of National Gold Champion in my favorite event – Program of Oral Interpretation. The real reward was connecting with competitors, judges, and teammates through my words. It was an eye-opening experience and it was in those moments that I realized I need to pursue my passion for performing and storytelling. I am currently studying improv on a full scholarship at iO West through the Inclusion Program, as well as a UCB Diversity scholarship recipient. I continue to enjoy the journey driving to auditions in my Prius C, yes and-ing life and getting an unreal 50 miles per gallon.
