About Me

Raven M. Smith was born and raised in Central Jersey (a very real place). She began her acting endeavors at the age of five in elementary school and within her local church. Before fully realizing her true passion for acting, she was an avid musician and a member/captain of her high school's marching band. Acting became an integral part of her life after she joined her high school's drama club, taking on the role of publicist for her final two years of high school. During her Junior year of high school, she was one of 100 students (out of 10,000) selected to attend the Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine. There, she spent the weekend taking Acting and Networking classes with industry professionals, such as actor Lamman Rucker.


In the summer of 2015, she was accepted into the Rutgers Summer Acting Conservatory, studying acting, movement, and voice. In early 2016, she was accepted into the Montclair State BFA Acting program. She was cast in several Montclair State theatre productions - her final performance as the headstrong Nasreen and naïve Belen in Naomi Iizuka's "Anon(ymous)", directed by INTAR Theatre's Lou Moreno, earned her a nomination for the 2020 Irene Ryan Scholarship Award. Shortly after her senior showcase, she signed a year contract with Glitter Talent Agency. She graduated cum laude in May 2020, receiving the BFA Acting Award.

She currently resides in the Tri-State area, where she continues to pursue an acting career and is currently premiering her webseries Quarter Life Crisis in several film and new media festivals.
