Years ago, I went to visit Arizona and met up with Alena and her friend Christa in the beautiful and majestic small town of Sedona, Arizona. Shot in and behind a Mexican-themed mall named Tlaquepaque, this young and talented actor is right at home with the arts surrounding her. Pictured here, in 2012, she was 15, mature far beyond her years. I can only imagine what great things lie ahead for her! Be sure to follow her new work here.
