Aziza Macklin Camp Bio

Counselor for Turquoise, Arts Camp for 7-11 year olds

Pronoun preference: she/her

Hi! My name is Aziza Macklin, and I'm so excited to join the OTS Summer Camp team for my second year. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and I moved to Chicago almost two years ago. I'm an actress who substitute teaches during the day and acts at night. Wait, scratch that -- I act during the day AND I act at night! After snagging a BFA from Wright State University, I worked at Columbus Children's Theatre as a touring actor and teaching artist for two years. I've worked and taught in Cincinnati as well. I love chocolate chip cookies, any exercise that makes me forget I'm exercising (Zumba!), Michael Jackson, and talking back to my TV. I'm so excited to spend this summer together, and I'm looking forward to ending my second year in the city with growth, memories, and new friends!
