Ginger has Hunger "Pangas" for Success!

It’s not everyday that we see our dreams realized. Especially when you’re still a teen! But age is not a barrier for Barbizon of Akron alum, Ginger Pangas! Ginger shows us that all we need is passion, confidence and the drive to continually improve to get where we want to go. Check out her story below!

I’m Ginger Pangas a Barbizon graduate. I am 17 years of age and a senior at St. Vincent St. Mary High School. I became involved in the Entertainment field when I was scouted at the age of 14.

I started training to be an actress and model through countless workshops, schools and working free as an extra to build my resume. Through this process I built many bridges to get me to the NEXT level. If it’s your passion and DREAM, then go for it!

It was during this time that I discovered Barbizon of Akron. I thought “Ok, cool more training for me as a model,” but it was more than that! When I signed up and attended the first class I’m like: “Wow… I love this!” I met new friends and learned everything a teen girl needs to know to improve her self-confidence! I knew this is what I needed to succeed in this crazy world of Entertainment. Parents always have their kids in sports or some kind of actives, but they never think to help them with confidence, skin care, image, clothing, shopping, hair, color image and more!

What teen girl doesn’t like to talk about this stuff?!? But how often do parents have the time or simply forget? Barbizon is definitely a must on your activity list. Try it you will LIKE it!

Since Barbizon, I have taken this confidence to the next level. I have been in a Paramount Pictures film, many runway shows, countless film, voiceovers, and more. But my true love is singing!

At the young age of 17, I have produced a new CD available on iTunes and Amazon called “BELIEVE”. This was recorded in New York with producer Arty Skye in Times Square. I’m playing gigs and clubs in Cleveland, working with the best music schools in Ohio including Baldwin Wallace College. I have been offered 2 contracts and am currently working on my next CD. You need confidence to get on stage. I love following my Dream.

Best of Luck and always BELIEVE… Ginger Pangas, Copley,Ohio
