Sierra Santana has been a plus size model and actress for 5 years. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine and noticing a lack of diversity in magazines and on screen, Santana became passionate about becoming the face she needed to see in the media when she was young.
With a personal dedication to see women and girls of all colors and sizes represented in the media, Santana sought out and achieved modeling jobs with some of the top brands in the country including Target, Ford, Torrid, Sunsets Inc, Manhattan Beachwear and most recently, a billboard in Times Square for Curvy Couture Intimates.
Santana, who has built a social media following of 31,000 and growing, makes a concerted effort to use her platform to create a dialogue about the importance of intersectional feminism and adequate representation within the media. In addition to starring in the upcoming short film ONE NIGHT, which features a full LGBTQ and Latinx cast and crew, Santana serves as a producer. She is also producing a feature film titled COAST, a coming of age story of a young Latina girl in a Central Coast agriculture town. She hopes her growing platform and staunch activism for Women, PoC and the LGBTQ community, will contribute to bridging the gap between access and opportunity for disenfranchised individuals.
Santana has trained at: The Groundlings Theater, UCB, Stuart Rogers Studio and is currently at Candace Silvers Studio. Full resume available upon request.
