GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Due to being familiar with the city, Juanes decided to move to San Francisco in 2015 to pursue her bachelor’s in Drama with a theatre performance emphasis at SF State. The actor then graduated in 2017 and has been performing live ever since.

The actor has also noted that learning method acting has been a big takeaway at SF State, which has helped her exercise the act of getting into character.

“Don’t just read the lines — read in between the lines,” Juanes said. “You could come up with so many different scenarios that you have developed on your own that may have no relation to what’s been written. My job as an actor is to go, ‘How can I dig deeper?’”
