Nia Baker is a junior at USC studying acting and film. USC awarded Nia a full tuition scholarship to pursue her acting endeavors at their School of Dramatic Arts.
At the University of Oxford, Nia immersed herself into classical training and was selected to play the titular role of Hamlet in the final production. Nia also embraced conservatory style training during a five week acting intensive at the Yale School of Drama.
Nia acted, directed, and produced a one woman show at a professional theatre in the DC area. This ambitious undertaking required her to raise all necessary funds by herself, through bake sales and other entrepreneurial efforts.
Nia is recently seen in A Black College Show, a web series that she created with her friends at USC film school to highlight underrepresented narratives of black joy and friendship. She is seen in Starving, a dark-comedy that examines society's obsession with consumer culture. Nia is managed by Elizabeth Wilson at Luber Roklin Entertainment.
