Gwinnett teen set to graduate college at 19, pursue film roles


At age 19, most people are worried about choosing a major in college. For Mya Morton, her concern is getting ready for college graduation and focusing on the next step in her life.

Morton wants to become an actor, a passion she said began in middle school.

“My parents wouldn’t let me act when I was in Kuwait, so once I graduated high school and my mother moved back to Kuwait, I started taking classes and going to auditions,” Morton said.

Although she’s still a teenager, Morton is wise beyond her years, something that can be attributed to the journey that has spanned more than 7,200 miles and will conclude in May with one short walk across the stage at Georgia State University’s commencement.
