Ayo Oneké Cummings
Graphic Educational Campus, Manhattan
Oneké’s artistic journey in Minnesota the land of 10,000 lakes. Most of her childhood she wanted to be a doctor, so Oneké headed to Spelman College in Atlanta, GA and declared Bio-Pre-Med as her major. After a semester she quickly realized her passion was NOT in biology, and after some soul searching she discovered the Spelman College Department of Drama and Dance. That is where she found her passion. After graduating from Spelman, Oneké interned with Georgia Shakespeare, followed by working as a Teaching Artist / Performer with CLIMB Theatre in Inver Grove Heights, MN. Oneké then attended Graduate School in New York at the New School for Drama. She has since worked as a teaching artist for several organizations throughout New York City and is happy to now be a part of Opening Act.
