Hi, I’m Christianne Holly Santiago (please call me Holly) and I’m from
the small city of Walnut, CA. I grew up with a family of music lovers and
have been jamming out to The Beatles since I was born. Before I found
my way back to theatre, I spent four years getting a Bachelors degree in Communications. It sounds mundane but I actually had a blast while doing it. I
interned in Seattle for two of their major radio stations one summer, and later
started managing my school's radio station in Fullerton, CA. I was constantly
surrounded by music and got to throw concerts as well as interview artists in
all walks of the music industry. Although my job was really cool, there was
something huge missing from my life. Talking to so many musicians about
their art and music made me realize I needed to come back to what I really
loved doing. A year after graduation, I decided to follow that instinct and
start doing what I really loved. I made my way back to the stage. All that
said, I am a huge advocate for following your dreams and doing what you
really LOVE to do. Finding your PASSION is such a huge part of living a
happy and fulfilling life. What fuels you? What inspires you every day?
Whatever that is - DO IT. My journey as an artist is far from over and I will
continue to grow and tell important stories and fight for representation and
inclusivity in the arts. When I'm not chasing the dream, I'm most likely eating
french fries, binging anime, being a coffee snob, singing at church, playing
sports I'm bad at (like golf and volleyball), or laying out at the beach.
disclaimer: I do consider myself to be quite the french fry craving, magic girl embodying, anime loving enthusiast. If you're here for this energy then...
