My guest speaker actress/director/producer/dancer Keena Ferguson one of her quotes is “You don’t have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great.” Keena Ferguson a Multi-artist, is known for her bright warm smile, strong presence and agility as an actress. She hails from Jefferson City, MO the “Show Me State” and she was most definitely born to be in “Show Biz.” A graduate of The Ohio State University where she received her B.F.A in dance, she moved to Los Angeles less than a week after graduation to begin her career. Her love of all things creative (dancer/choreographer, actress, VO artist, writer, producer, director) has led her to fully accept all of her many talents and Keena now calls herself a multi artist.
