Your Advantage & Awareness

Academy Newsletter Interview - July 2021

Young Artist Academy™ Award Nominee Mia Bella Shewchuk is an actress, singer, student and martial artist who loves performing! The 12 1/2-year old from Vancouver, British Columbia gives great networking advice for working in Entertainment and shares who she looks to in order to stay grounded.

There are some things that I feel very strongly about, such as women’s rights. I’m also active in supporting anti-bullying campaigns. As far as the arts go, I’m also a singer, dancer and martial artist. I just love performing, whether it’s acting, dancing or singing. I also have loved meeting so many amazing people! My parents and my friends keep me well grounded.
My most recent noteworthy role would be as Kali in Gabby Duran and the Unsittables. It’s my first recurring role and I’ve learned so much on set working with the talented cast and crew. Not to mention how much fun I’ve had during filming! 
Networking Tip: Be open to talking with everyone around you, whether on set or in audition rooms or at performances. You never know what kind of connections you will make until you are open to engaging with others. My dad is really good at that and I’m learning lots about networking from him. 
Business Advice: My parents and my agent really take care of the business side of things. But as far as advice I’ve received, the thing my parents always tell me is to set small goals to achieve on the way to a bigger goal, to work hard and to keep an open mind.

Look for Mia in upcoming music projects and in song mashups on Instagram Reels!

Please be thorough and insist on this protective measure when making new Industry Connections. The Young Artist Academy™ is bonded and in full compliance with the Krekorian Talent Act, an expansion of the California Advance Fee Talent Service Law. In compliance with California Legislature Sections 1286 to 1289 and Assembly Bill 1660, the Academy's annual awards show is produced by Stage Managers, Directors, Writers and Producers carrying Child Performer Services Permits. While no process is perfect, this is one that we take seriously and are committed to constantly improving. Rigorous protocols created exclusively by and for the Young Artist Academy™ have received praise as the new "gold standard" for youth awards organizations. We remain community-minded and committed to our obligations in this area. We welcome respectful inquiries, questions, and concerns at
