The Yakima Valley is filled with exceptional talent, but whenever one of our own can make it in Hollywood, it is something to be cheered for! Then when she gets a spot in outer space on one of the best sci-fi shows of this generation, it's a feat that should be celebrated!

Yakima native Adele Shepherd has done just that! Starting her dance and performing arts training at 3 years old, Adele took her ballerina lessons to the next level when she was discovered and put into the 2020 short film "A Summoning…" by rock band My Chemical Romance.
