Adria Arjona’s Father Inspired Her
As per Arjona’s IMDb biography, which was written by her, she spent most of her childhood traveling around different places due to her father’s profession. Her father used to take her on his tours, which helped her learn about art, music, and a bohemian lifestyle.
At the age of 12, she moved to Miami, United States, with her family and stayed there until the age of 18. But, she left Miami only to make a huge decision to settle down in New York City on her own and become an actress.
To make sure that she makes progress, professionally and personally, her father also took a big decision to not let things be handed over or easily given to her. She worked as a waitress and hostess to pay her bills whilst also studying acting at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

Since then, she has never looked back and has continued to work hard and achieve things on her own. Presently, she has 19 acting credits to her IMDb profile, without including the 5 upcoming acting gigs.
