"I tend to look at the positive in everything around me, even the dark gloomy times in my life, I focus on what I have learned from those experiences and put it toward a better and brighter tomorrow."
Elisa Marti was born and raised in Italy where, at an early age, she showed a great deal of passion for acting and dancing, embodying a multitude of characters and writing plays in the solitude of her bedroom. At 4 years old, she starred as 'Alice' dancing on stage in the production 'Alice in Wonderland'. Ever since then, she has been following her artistic dream.
She attended the University of Art and Entertainment in Italy and consequently obtained her Master degree in theater at the international Film School, Sydney, Australia.
