Kyra Cardoso chose to come to Nassau Community College for its affordability and for
the opportunity to earn a degree in acting. She recently acted in Noel Calloway’s "Mr.
Santa," a movie about restoring the Christmas spirit.
"My experience in being a part of the film was wonderful. Everyone was so unbelievably kind and talented. You could feel the passion from everyone on set," said Kyra. "Working with such a seasoned and professional cast and crew in my role as Maddie Wiseman was the greatest learning experience. "
Kyra is scheduled to graduate from NCC this summer. "Being able to work professionally and continue my education was very important to me, and going to Nassau allowed me to do that. I practically live at the theater building when rehearsing for shows, and have become close with many other like-minded students," she said. Kyra fondly remembers when she and other acting students were nominated as a group for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and took a road trip to Cape Cod to participate in the workshops and compete in the regional competition. With all these experiences she would definitely recommend Nassau to other students, especially those who want to build a foundation in the theater industry.
After graduating from NCC, Kyra plans to continue to pursue her career in acting.
I served in the United States Navy in Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, II and at Camp Pendleton with the 5th Marines. I was also deployed to Okinawa, Japan twice. Stateside, I knew that Nassau Community College has a reputation for being very military friendly, and when I got here, it was true.
