13-yr-old Esabella Anna Karena Strickland is an Award Winning Actress, Filmmaker, novel writer, artist and influencer based out of Vancouver, BC. She is a young, raw talent who is a champion against child illiteracy and acts as an empowering figure against bullying through the arts. In 2018 Esabella starred in local indie short film’s Enlightenment, Things You Take and Arthurs Gift. She also co-wrote, co-directed and starred in the film My Red Ball through the Young Movie Makers Program. My Red Ball handles themes of bullying, written through Esabella’s own life experiences, it has went on to win at several film festivals Esabella has also made appearances on local productions of Travelers and Series of Unfortunate Events. Esabella recently had the honour of being asked to be a co-host for the 53 rd Annual Variety Show of Hearts Telethon, supporting the cause that has been so good to her. Esabella also was invited to the 2019 Adobe Summit as an Adobe Insider, she was the youngest influencer’s to attend the Las Vegas event and was in the top 10 in Social Media Engagement during the week of the Summit. Esabella has also just finished co-writing her first Young Adult novel, Then and There, Here and recently signed with one of the top literary agency in New York and plans to have it published soon. Esabella has worked hard to train herself with techniques she uses to deal with both her anxiety, Adhd and dyslexia. Through this process she’s discovered what she calls her two superpowers, memorizing and a higher level of sensitivity toward others, including the characters she plays. She has also trained herself with mindfulness and grounding techniques to cope with anxiety – something she hopes to pass on to those she works with.
