THE NEW YORK WEEKLY
JULY 12, 2020
Keep up With Nana Ponceleon’s Acting Projects. Nana Ponceleon is a full-time actress in New York City whose acting journey was anything but ordinary. She has always had a passion for acting, but it materialized later in her life.
She had the ideal and perfect life everyone dreams of. As a graduate of a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Computer Science in New York City’s Pace University, she was mostly employed in sales. Eleven years of her corporate career were dedicated to Microsoft Venezuela, wherein she worked in corporate sales, mid-market, OEM, loyalty, and distribution channels among other departments.
When she mustered the courage to make a significant career change and live out her passion, she left Microsoft and ventured into freelance sales consulting. While engaging business clients, she would reserve time on the weekend to attend regular acting classes of a renowned actor, director, and teacher in Venezuela.
She later decided to come to New York and study acting at Stella Adler Studio of Acting and graduated with flying colors, doing better today as a working actress than many of her younger counterparts. Since then, she has performed in a principal role in different episodes of the well known Investigation Discovery show The Perfect Murder. She was hired by Columbia University to act in four episodes as a therapist who was helping grieving parents to cope with losing a child. Given the positive comments on her job, Columbia University hired her again to film eight more episodes.
