Patel is born and raised in Southwest Florida and loves all things pertaining to performing arts.

"I have a younger cousin, Pooja, 10, who also enjoys the arts. We both like acting, modeling, singing and dancing."

Turns out another thing these cousins have in common is something they won.

"We both won a one year contract with a talent agency. So you could say we have some acting experiences we've had through our agency. In addition, some personal experiences I've had in acting include a variety of plays at school plus acting competitions."

Stage acting and modeling is not the only thing this talented young lady excels at.

"I also have done stand-up comedy, speak several accents which make me more vesatile in acting roles, and now I have landed a role in the film 'Casting.' My cousin has a part too, and our character names are Rani Singh (Pooja's) and mine is Nina Singh. We're listed at IMDb."

This will be Patel's first film. From what has heard about her readings she nailed the part.

The film is a short produced by a film and television organization that Patel is a member of. The group is called the United Film & Television Artists (UFTA). Patel is becoming an active UFTA member, especially now with her film role. The film begins early 2014.
