From Beauty Queen to Entertainment Industry Leader
Patricia Sturla, born in the picturesque province of Genoa in Northern Italy, is the European beauty that brought life to Patricia Sturla Studios, the largest training and personal development facility in California for individuals yearning to step into the exciting world of the entertainment industry.
From an early age it was very clear that Patricia would make her mark in this world. Her appreciation for the arts and aesthetics led Patricia to pursue her passion, and establish a successful career gracing the top runways of Europe, modeling for renowned designers, appearing in élite publications as well as the big screen.
Earning the prestigious title of Miss Italy in the World only expanded Patricia's horizons, which led her, in the same year, to obtain the crown of Miss California, as well as the title of Latin Model of the Year.
Her continued efforts and enthusiasm for life and personal development enabled her to pursue her education in the performing arts, and ultimately obtain a degree in communications from California State University at Fullerton.Mastering three languages (Italian, English, and Spanish) enabled Patricia to reach out to other cultures in the United States. Her life-long desire to extend her talent for a worthy cause became a reality. In 1997 she created the first facility in the arts geared towards the Hispanic population. Patricia, along with her mother and business partner Irene Sturla, formed what is now the largest and most prestigious acting, modeling, and personal development center in California: Patricia Sturla Studios, now also offering singing and dancing classes, as well as weekly castings.
