About Jinissa Meggi

I am Jinissa Meggi, I was born and raised in Portugal, and I have Indian and Mozambican heritage, I speak Portuguese, Spanish, Gujarati, and English. I started acting when I was 14 almost by mistake on a challenge, but it turned out to be what I decided to pursue. I studied performing arts in Lisbon, and then moved to Northampton, UK to study Acting and Devising at University.
Acting for me is the possibility to journey through different lives and discover a little bit about myself and this world every time.
