My Fabulous Style got recently got a chance to chat with singer-songwriter/actress Shvona
. Shvona excelled in the arts at an early age and the Queens, NY native was classically
trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Despite a rapidly-ascending
profile in front of the camera as a skilled actress, Shvona stayed intent on making her musical
dreams a reality. In 2011, she joined the Stampede Management roster, which also includes
Snoop Dogg and Far East Movement.


1. Can you tell us what inspired you to get into acting?

*I was inspired to learn more about acting at an early age. My grandmother
always kept me involved in the arts whether it was dance, theater or buying
me a keyboard for Christmas. She always nurtured my artistic side. I was
always intrigued by the idea of storytelling, becoming different characters
and exploring different parts of myself. *

2.  You have many acting credits on your resume and you have crossed over
into music, between acting and music, which is your true passion?

*My true passion is art whether I'm writing a song, painting or on the set
of a television show. As long as I am expressing myself, I am content.
Music lives in a different place in my heart than acting, but they're

3. Which actors, actresses, or singers inspire you and why?

*I'm inspired musically by the jazz greats: Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday
and Lena Horne. Their effortlessness and flawlessness astound me and their
music is classic and timeless. I admire actresses like Angela Bassett and
Kate Winslet. They take chances and are not afraid to get dirty. *

4.  You currently released three quick go-to fitness videos with your
trainer Darci Mayan. What is your favorite way to stay in shape?
My favorite way to stay fit is a healthy diet and a consistent workout
regimen. Most recently, I have been circuit training. I love how it keeps
me on my toes and I never get bored.*

5. What projects are you currently working on and can you elaborate on them?

*I'm currently working on my third album with producer Justin Hori. I'm
excited about the sound and the tone of the album. 

6. Where do you see yourself and your career in five years?

*In five years, I see my career in a better place than I could have ever
imagined. I like to dream big and aim high. As long as I am freely
expressing myself, the job is done. With my experience in film and
television, I would love to start writing someday. *

7. What advice do you have for upcoming actresses/singers that want to
pursue a career in the entertainment industry?

*The advice I would give to anyone trying to pursue a career in music
and/or film and television would be to stay true to your goals. Dream big
aim high and do not take "no" for an answer. Never compromise your
morals--once you've gone down that path there's no return. Good luck!
