Born in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Anastasia was a creative child from the beginning. She came from a middle class family and every penny counted, so when her mother enrolled her in a dance class at the at of 5, Anastasia put her all into it. Appearing in competitions and performing in front of the president of the Republic of Kazakhstan. When Anastasia and her mother moved to the United States, Anastasia was only 12. She knew not a word of English but when her mother enrolled her in a school where there was no ESL program, Anastasia knew that it was up to her to make her life easier. When they arrived in America they only had $50 with them, seeing as they had no money Anastasia knew that she had to make it happen on her own. Picking up any thrown out newspapers or free magazines, Anastasia spent long days translating and trying to understand. In less than a year, Anastasia held a conversation well in English and was therefore sent to a boarding school where ESL was offered to help her perfect the grammar. There, is where she discovered her passion for creating. Her first ever play she was in was the Pirates of Penzance where she played a mere pirate but fell in love with the creative process and what came out as the final product after all the hard work.
