A Local 12-Year-Old Charter School for Applied Technology seventh-grade student named Mya Miller has been nominated for the role she played in a Short Film called, 'A' My Name Is.  Now Mya is headed to the 'Nice International Film Festival', according to the news report.

Mya's Mom Congratulates her on FB:

The news report reads as such:

The movie was shot at DeGraff Hospital on a vacant floor.

"I am grateful that I got a part in it and there are so many people that auditioned. I can't believe I got the role, and it's nice to be a part of something big in Buffalo.

Mya is a high honors student with aspirations to be a lawyer or an actress. 

Her acting credits are growing. She was Ursula in "Little Mermaid: The Reversal" and Kaa in "The Jungle Book." She was most recently cast as a bullied student in a commercial for "Bandage Control," directed by Christina Cares, highlighting the impact of childhood trauma on mental health.
