However, her passion for acting turned into a mission after she could not coach some actors in the movie “The Possible” to cry in line with the screenplay. To expand her knowledge and sharpen her skills, she flew to New York to attend training courses at Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, Stella Adler Conservatory, HB Studio and with Michael Chekhov.
