About Me

Hey! My name is Kelsey Fonise Ferdinand and I am a first generation Haitian American actress. I currently reside in Boston but grew up north of Atlanta. As in, hot lemon pepper on your wings is the only way to order, Atlanta. It was at the Apache Cafe where I first performed my spoken word, that I fell in love with the art of storytelling. That passion has since bloomed into embracing myself as an actress, dancer, writer, poet and singer when I really want to be.

Outside of performing, you can catch me in the candle section of TJ Maxx or binging Netflix.

The Nou Collective

I am the creator and founder of The Nou Collective. An organization centered around amplifying the voices and stories of Haitian artists in the Stage, TV, and Film industries. We are all about fostering connections, breaking stereotypes and building a community. Wanna know more? Follow us!
