Times have shifted since my acting days. Before the Internet choices were narrower. These were my choices at your age. EG An agent, A full Equity Membership. (Miserable theatrical tests included being the back end of a camel). Or Be An already established "Name". If I wanted to act NOW which I DON'T, I would use my numerous acting exams passed, together with exhibiting my show reels to as many film festivals as possible. IF the films got the necessary interest .....take it from there. You are in a unique position "To Get Yourself Out THERE."
Theater! There are community theater opportunities in many places. Some colleges even let non-students audition.
