03 Feb Natalie Hansen - PINC Academy Spring 2018
My name is Natalie Hansen. I am currently attending Stella Adler's Art of Acting Studio in Los Angeles where I am pursuing my acting education. I graduated from Truman State University in May 2018 with a BA in Theatre and a minor in English. I am excited to work with PINC and the amazing women who also believe in this company. I went on the 2015 Winter Immersion with PINC and fell in love with the culture and this company!
At Truman State, I played club basketball, a founding member of the Zeta Beta chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon, president of TAG Improv, a member of the Newman Center, a member of Alpha Psi Omega (the theatre honor society), a Costume Shop Intern, and was cast in a few shows through the theatre department. Currently, I am solely involved with my classes at the Art of Acting, but I coach youth basketball and work as a receptionist when I am not in class!
Ten years from now I hope to be a successful stand-up comedian, however I define "successful" at that time! I also hope to be married with children.
My proudest accomplishments to date have been going to Spain with PINC, studying abroad in Ireland, and moving to LA. I've been more self-reliant and independent than I ever thought possible, and it's amazing to me that I've traveled to countries and places without knowing someone there! It makes me feel that I can accomplish anything.
I would love to have coffee with Amy Poehler! She has been my comedic icon for so long. She's an outspoken, funny, and independent woman who I 'd love to chat with about being a woman in comedy! She also has a foundation for young women, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, and I find everything she does inspiring!
