Hannah Myers ’08 has always been fiercely-goal oriented. As a CDS student from Grades 10-12, she took drama all three years but was mainly involved in sports and leadership positions, playing soccer and rugby and serving on Student Council.
She went on to graduate with a BA in Theatre from Dalhousie University in 2012 – and returned to Toronto to pursue work in film and television. When she enrolled in an improv class at Second City, Hannah discovered her love and natural aptitude for comedy and began writing and producing a web series, while auditioning for small roles and waitressing on the side.
In spring of 2014, Hannah was admitted into an acting program in New York where her desire to be involved in more then one area of storytelling was solidified. Once again, her natural instincts kicked in, and she returned to Toronto to take screenwriting courses through U of T’s School of Continuing Studies and started applying to graduate programs.
“I knew I needed to be in LA if I was going to have a shot at the career I wanted to have, but I needed to figure out how to make that happen, working backwards I set tiny goals that seemed more realistically achievable.”
