Hi everyone in Kofy Land! My name is Ashley Short and I am a twenty-seven year old female living in downtown San Jose, CA. I have always been excited to meet new people from different cultures and backgrounds. Kofy TV has such a large range of audience that it would be an honor to connect with the viewers. My friends express me as outgoing, eclectic, truthful, and spontaneous. My background in the TV world includes landing two small extra roles in, "That 70's Show" and "Bandits" the movie. Growing up I participated in numerous musicals and plays which has helped me grow into a performer. I cannot express enough how theater molded me in being comfortable in my own skin. What makes me stand out from others, (meaning other caucasians) is that I speak Japanese! I am deeply influenced with all Asian culture and history. I am an avid Cosplayer, and attend large Japanese influenced conventions regularly throughout the year. I am also a dedicated athlete. I train in an intense Chinese martial art called, "Wushu" just like Jet Li and Jackie Chan. I am very dedicated to my training, up to five days a week, and am fortunate to be training under my Coach who is a three time national champion from China. I am comfortable in front of the camera, hold easy and smooth conversations, and am willing to bring myself to the next level of performing in front of an audience. Thank you very much for reviewing my virtual Kofy TV host virtual audition. Arrigato!
