Darius Fraser

Class of 2021

My Bio:

Born to Caribbean immigrants who settled down in small town Virginia, Darius spent his childhood attempting to fit the mold his town had created. During his teen years, his father was elected mayor of Purcellville, VA, earning Darius the nickname, “Fresh Prince of Purcellville.” As he grew into himself, Darius traded his small town football uniform for dancing shoes. Through theater, Darius discovered a passion for telling stories and bringing them to life. Now, Darius studies drama at Carnegie Mellon University; cultivating and expanding his love for acting, singing, dancing, rapping, and life itself. Between odd jobs and his studies, Darius has found time to grow into his spontaneous spirit and desire to reclaim space for Black voices and stories.
