Paula Pete

Life on stage started at an early age for Paula Pete.  Initially shy, Paula gained her sense of confidence as she learned how to captivate audiences through the performing arts. As her confidence grew, her self-expression blossomed to encompass modern dance, baton twirling, track, tennis, modeling and theater arts.

 

During high school, Paula won numerous dance competitions and was eventually selected to be a "regular" dancer on a local television show, which resulted in her consistent exposure to studio production at a very young age.  This experience led to Paula's choice to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. She majored in Drama/Theater & Radio Broadcasting at Florida A&M University, where she managed the campus radio station (WAMF), and ultimately received her Bachelor's degree. Since then, Paula's career has taken many twists and turns, including work in radio promotions marketing and public relations.

 

But now, after 40 years, she has returned to her true love and sincere passion, the performing arts.   One of Pete's favorite sayings is that, "life is a stage", and after years of working in the background as a supporting artist, she is ready to take front and center in her rightful place in the industry. As stated in her own words, "I have put in the work, I've practiced and studied, and I feel the timing is right! My motto is to never give up on your dream, no matter how long it takes!
