As for her film experience, Lani began acting at age 3 and continued to act and perform all through her early years. She was accepted into the acting program for Center for Creative Arts, a prestigious magnet Jr High/High School for which one must audition to gain entry. There she began to hone her acting craft early on. That background and training has led to her appearing in many stage, television and movie productions over the years. Lani also figured out at a very early age that she would rather write the roles she wanted more than trying to find roles she wanted to play. She wrote her first script at age 10 and had written seven scripts by the time she was 15. Her most recent script is for a feature film that is currently in development in 2017.
