"Alexa has enjoyed Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts (SCSOPA) from the very first day she started taking classes. As her parents, we thought it would be a great idea for her to take classes like 'Runway,' 'Cold Read,' 'Audition Techniques' and 'Scene Study,' since she had shown an interest in acting. Never did we think things would happen so quickly. The school not only prepared our child to go on auditions, but also has provided the opportunity to meet reputable agents that come to the school. Alexa signed up with KSR, one of the top agencies in the west coast, and has had great success. Less than two months after signing, Alexa booked her first commercial with Hasbro Ponyville, but hat was just the beginning. Soon after, she filmed another commercial for FurReal Friends S'mores the Pony, a voice over for My Little Mommy Baby Knows, a commercial for Microsoft, a back up spot with Jif peanut butter, and another for Hasbro Baby so Soft. When we asked Alexa what she liked the most about SCSOPA, she said she likes 'all the teachers because they make class fun and you learn at the same time,' and that she really likes Mike because he is always in a good mood and gives her balloons. She also loves all the friends she has made. As far as filming goes, Alexa has had a blast. She is literally treated like a princess," - Alexa's Parents
