Addi Ajmani, who plays the role of Mala, is extremely proud to be joining the cast of 30 Days in September. Addi is a Bay Area native and first dabbled in the performing arts through dance, performing in showcases. Soon after, at the age of 13, she expanded into theater - taking part in improv groups, local musicals, and renditions of classic plays, like Shakespeare. Addi was selected to be part of a 4-year performing arts dance and theater intensive diploma program. Upon completing the diploma program, her passion for the arts amplified and she wanted to continue in what she did best, storytelling. Addi expanded into film and currently studies at Film Acting Bay Area in Emeryville. She practices the art of mindfulness which keeps her aware and able to play in a wide range of context.
