About Eyiara

Eyiara is an actress, singer and writer.
She has been busy this year performing in theatre productions, from a musical about The Congo, to performing in Scotland, in association with the National Theatre of Scotland.
In 2014, she decided to go to France for three years to study French but to explore a new culture as well. The time she spent there helped her to find herself, allowing her to fully realise the reason why she decided to act. Out of this discovery, she wrote a book titled "This is Wonder" (available on AMAZON) filled with personal stories and lessons she has been learning so far in her life journey.

Now she wants to get more involved in on-screen projects which give a voice to the voiceless, stories that help us become more empathetic human beings.
