Dwight Gayle

ACTOR

My name is Dwight Gayle, I am 25 years old, I was born and raised in rural Jamaica in the parish of St James. My hobbies are reading, dancing, singing, motivating & inspiring people.   

Acting is something I am  passionate about growing up as a child. I realized at an early age that I loved acting, and it could be a lifetime career for me. My mother wanted me to attended Cornwall  College, but I did my research and found out that Herbert Morrision offered Visual & Performing Arts as part of thier curriculumn, so I told my mom that I would be going to Herbert Morrision instead. 

 

*I am currently working as Actor/Performer at RoseHall Great House on the Interactive Haunted Night Tour Directed By Douglas Prout.

*I was a Cast Member on the Television Program 'Talk Up Youth: Season 8 Episode 10, 'Street Yout'.

*I have done  acting classes with Antonio Dennis (my present WCOPA Talent Scout), and Dario Shields (a former WCOPA contestant). They gave me the courage to enter this competition.

*I also participated in the Camille Davis Acting & Empowerment Workshop training. 

 

I want to do this competition because I want to win and represent Jamaica in the best way possible with my acting skills. I am on a journey to becoming one of Jamaica's iconic influential Actors.  My biggest inspiration to enter the competition is my mother, this was her dream too,  so i am doing it for both of us. I want to inspire, and& motivate others to go after there dream, to never give up, no matter what the situation. The power lies within us to accomplish anything we dream. 

 

What I hope to achieve from this competition is for the platform to help me take my acting career to another level. I anticipate gaining the experience of what's it's like being on the world stage.

 

Goals 

*Attend university to attain a Degree in the arts.

*To have a organization  to give back to the less fortunate people who are struggling to pay for secondary examinations  

* carrying home the world championship title.

Jumaine Lewis

I’m from Kingston Jamaica. I grew up in the community of Olympic Way at Woodpecker Avenue , then moved to Tower Hill at Poncianna some years after. I went to St. Steven Basic School, and after i completed my years at that institution I went to Seaward Primary and Junior High School. I then went to Windward Road Primary and Junior High and I passed for Vauxhall High School that I am currently attending. This institution has a rich history in the Jamaican High School singing competitions, 'ALTOGETHER SING'.

 

I started singing at the age of 8 years old, from then I just had a passion for singing. Growing up in the church always encouraged me to keep singing. I have only been to one singing competition, and it was a school singing and drama competition called 'Vaux’s Art' , and I entered with my friends and we were placed third.

 

I am now focusing on this huge upcoming competition in LA, and I am going to make my country proud!
