My name is Maia Mei Macpherson and I’m a Pace University, Senior BFA Acting student. I was born in Singapore from where we traveled extensively throughout Asia. We moved to the United Arab Emirates when I was seven, exploring the Middle East for over a decade before graduating from the American School of Dubai. As a Canadian, my summers growing up were spent on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
Despite living outside of North America, I stayed focused on my true passion — the performing arts. In Dubai I worked with actors from all over the world. Training brought me to places such as Interlochen in Michigan, Lincoln, Nebraska and Oklahoma City. I eventually moved to New York to attend Pace Performing Arts. COVID brought me back to Canada and Vancouver where I’m finishing my degree and discovering my country’s vibrant film industry.
