DIJA HENRY BIO
Dija Henry is an actress, writer and filmmaker based in the Midwest. She has been acting professionally for 15 years starting out in improv and then attending Purdue University gaining degrees in theater and biomechanics. It sounds like a weird pairing but it simply reflects her love of art and wellness.
Whether it's performing on stage, screen, commercials, print work and voiceover, Dija brings passion, creativity and her signature quirkiness to all of her work.
She is the founder of Inspire(d) Arts & Media and the creator of Sweatpants & High Heels, an empowering, comedic one woman show for millennial moms.
Recently, Dija published her first book "I Dare You Not to Compare Yourself to Others" and has been requested to speak at several women's events. She likes to think it's because she brings fun to everything she does.
Her favorite films include The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Hidden Figures and anything about super heroes. She hopes to act alongside Matt Damon, Gina Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson one day.
