Stephanie Santana: A Rising Star 

Just a few short years ago, Stephanie Santana hadn’t even begun to consider acting and modeling. She was serving her country in the US Air Force and working with the government. She even obtained two medical degrees that she intended to use to continue that work. But something changed.

Stephanie took action, starting out by signing with an agency and taking a few modeling and acting classes. It was clear from the very beginning that she was a natural, quickly booking numerous acting and modeling roles. She was featured in international campaigns like “My Place Hotels” and “Arcadia Custom Windows,” pushing her success forward as she became a series regular in a telenovela web series. She even won a Latina Impact Award for her incredible talent and work.  

The Viral Moment 

Halfway through 2023, Stephanie posted a video to her Instagram of her behind the scenes of an upcoming role in which she plays a police officer. What she didn’t expect was the millions of viewers it quickly amassed. Comments like, “Hollywood actor in the making, cause I was convinced I had to rewatch it,” and “I actually thought you were a cop!” discuss just how incredible her portrayal was in this brief, impromptu clip.  

The Future for Stephanie Sanatana 

“I represent positivity, following dreams, and taking risks. I believe that if you aren’t happy, you have to find what will make you happy,” Stephanie says. “I love uplifting others and responding to my fans when they are facing tough times.”
