About Me

Myesha-Tiara hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She found her love for acting at the age of five during an after school program and hasn't looked back since. After attending the prestigious Baton Rouge Magnet High School, she decided to dedicate herself to her craft and enrolled in Northwestern State University, where in her sophomore year she was fortunate enough to be featured in the Oscar winning film "12 Years a Slave". While attending NSU Myesha-Tiara also discovered her love for directing and received her Bachelor of Science in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Performance and Directing. After college she performed for regional and touring theatres until she decided to make the big move to the Windy City. 

At the end of 2019 she also opened her own 501 c3 non-profit theatre company, Perceptions Theatre, on the Southside of Chicago.

In 2020 she also started a YouTube Channel, MT's Corner with Myesha-Tiara, that focuses on acting news, acting advice and her journey in the industry.
