Valen Lion was born into a family of farmers in Fresno, California. She’s the youngest of three and since she can remember she was creating stories and putting on shows with her two brothers. Her passion for acting continued to grow with her age, she was involved in many musicals during her primary years. She got more involved in Fresno’s theatre scene until the opportunity for growth grew nill. Valen moved on to study the performing arts at AMDA College of Performing Arts in Los Angeles. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in musical theatre and dreams to be an impactful actor in her community. When Valen isn’t working on her craft she loves to travel to experience new cultures, and food! Valen fights to be vulnerable for the culture that is afraid to show others their weaknesses and true identity. The most important thing she has learned thus far has been to find the gold in the individuals around her, making a point to love that which others may not see - “Shame dies when stories are told in safe spaces” Ann Voskamp.
