Cherrelle éLan is the change she wishes to see in the world. Since childhood, she has dedicated herself to the pursuit of truthful storytelling through creative media. Blending activism and the arts, she unleashes her voice as an actress and director in Los Angeles. Her mission: to be the powerful change for Black Americans in Hollywood to have a clear path and a valid voice. The D.C.-born creative attended The Duke Ellington School of the Arts, where she would later go on to initiate the first school-wide Media Day, earning her both a National Association of Multi-Ethnicity In Communications (NAMIC) award and a feature in The Newseum. A Magna Cum Laude graduate from Howard University, and Masters graduate from Syracuse University Newhouse School of Communications, she is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority; she had the honor of assisting her sorority sister, now Vice President Kamala Harris, during her visit to Los Angeles in 2013 during the 7th Annual Asomugha Foundation Gala.
