Daebreon Poiema was born and raised in sunny Southern California. At age 5, she created a soap opera with her Barbie dolls, "Barbie Island", which captivated her family, friends, and neighbors for five amazing seasons. It was clear to all who knew Daebreon that she had natural talent. When she was 12, her mother encouraged her to audition for a community college theater production, Aesop's Falables, a modern hip-hop musical twist to the classic fables of Aesop. Upon earning her 1st role as Ms. Hopper the Green Teeny Bopper in the retelling of "The Ant and the Grasshopper", Daebreon was officially bitten by the acting bug -- pun intended.
Daebreon went on to pursue her new found love of the stage at The Orange County High School of the Arts, playing Chiffon in Little Shop of Horrors, Deidre in Runaways, Gabby/Bobbi in City of Angels, and Erzulie in Once on this Island. While at OCHSA, she was a member of the performance group Kids Next Door. Daebreon received a BA in Theater Performance, with a concentration in Theater for Children, from The University of Texas at Austin. Starring as Lillly in Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, she toured elementary schools throughout Texas. As Akela the Wolf in Jungalbook, Daebreon had the privilege of performing for children from Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired and Texas School for the Deaf. These experiences shaped her passion for the art of acting, and created a desire within her to move people through sincere expression. She continued to further her education and training by completing the Master's program of The Actors Studio Drama School in New York.
Daebreon Poiema has been performing professionally for over 15 years. She gives all honor, glory, and praise to God for His continued, exceedingly abundant favor and faithfulness to His Word. As a gifted actress and singer, Daebreon feels extremely blessed to have graced stages in Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Japan, and throughout the United States. She is excited about the doors opening for her in commercials, film, and television.
