Nevin Bolla grew up with parents that came from two different continents. Both his father from India and mother from Arizona encouraged Nevin every step of the way to work harder in overcoming obstacles, which he still faces many times in his life.
One of the reasons why Nevin became an actor was from the help of third grade. For Nevin, third grade was when the life he thought he had was suddenly broken into a separation between his childhood friends and his education. It was when things that Nevin took for granted such as being with friends in class wasn't possible anymore. Since first grade, Nevin was put into various tests and studies where he had to remember a picture or a story that an instructor presented to him visually or verbally. It was in the third grade that Nevin, along with his parents, were informed that he had an "auditory processing deficiency" which affected how the brain processes and understands what the ear hears.
Nevin's school evaluation team informed him and his parents of his "inability to follow and process classroom material" as required for being in a regular GPA class. At that time Nevin was too young to understand the consequences, but events occurred after that meeting that made him realize that he would no longer have a normal school life. Throughout Nevin's childhood and teenage years he was handheld in a Special Ed program and was unable to advance to regular GPA classes without an instructor, an "Adviser," observing him. Separated from his friends and childhood life, Nevin started to explore different hobbies and interests to make his time go faster. This was when Nevin discovered the art of acting.
In Nevin's childhood he was fascinated in performances and the emotional expressions that actors gave out during films and theatrical performances. It was when in Nevin's darkest times that he wanted to precede a life in becoming an actor. Through all his elementary and first two years of high school, Nevin's only motivation was to get out of his Special Ed program and get back to regular classes so he could start working on his acting career. Nevin felt that he couldn't go anywhere in life without someone holding his hand and wanted to succeed from his own abilities, even when things in his life might get challenging. Nevin knew he had to work to become an actor, but he preferred to work by himself without any help from his friends and family. Nevin hid his passion of acting from his friends since Nevin knew that his friends would criticize him about becoming an actor, and his parents saw acting as a hobby rather than a career and would never approve on his career choice.
After many years of diligent work and taking additional coursework than most students, Nevin finally was able to leave the Special Ed program that he was put in for ten years and proceeded to create his acting career. Throughout trying to become an actor Nevin has gotten his car towed, spent most to all of his life savings, and continually lied to his parents about taking acting courses. But now, Nevin is currently attending California State University Northridge, where he's acquiring a degree in business as well as working everyday improving his acting techniques. Nevin stated that he wants to become an actor
because he sees acting as a way to inspire people by creating a human spirit that can help those who are loss. For Nevin ,in the field of acting, he explains that "even though I have suffered much I wouldn't change a thing, because throughout my life I had to struggle and fight my way to succeed. Where from it, it's made me strong, and it's made me for who I am. "
