Image result for rafael beatoA recent Alum of LSTFI, Rafael Beato has hit the ground running. Since he left the program in 2014 he has taken on several film and theatre projects; however, his recent role as “Rafa” in Repertorio Español’s production of “La Cancion” has earned him an ACE Award for Best Actor in a Musical at the 2017 award ceremony. A very talented actor from the Dominican Republic, Rafael is a hard worker who is determined to keep moving.

 In his speech he explained:  “Sometimes it is difficult for me to look back and feel pride in what I have achieved, since I am always thirsty for more, but seeing myself where I am today has to fill me with satisfaction because at my age I am doing what I love and I try to put the name of my country on high. I still need a lot more and I look forward to it”

We congratulated him on his achievement and look forward to his future successes!
