Alicia Josipovic as Bianca DeSousa
Alicia Josipovic joined the cast of Degrassi in its tenth season as Bianca. Dancing since the age of four, Alicia attended the Etobicoke School of the Arts for Dance and is trained in jazz, ballet, hip-hop and tap.
Prior to Degrassi, Alicia was a series regular in the Family Channel's show Abra Ca Dabra, and a featured dancer in Disney's Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam with Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers. In 2010, Alicia traveled to India to build a school with the organization "Free The Children". A documentary of the trip was made for MuchMusic in Canada. Alicia is a member of PETA, an animal activist, and proud owner of two cats. Alicia also enjoys cycling, swimming, downhill skiing, and golf.
Stand back "Jersey Shore" girls, Bianca thrives on telling people off. Her signature style: Hoop earrings, skin-tight jeans and the hottest new Adidas sneaks. Nails did and hair always juicy, Bianca loves attention from boys. Like a young, female Jay Hogart, Bianca's got da hook-ups. Fake ID? No problem. Score some weed? Ever ready to shoot her mouth off or put her fists up, Bianca wants the world to know she's fierce, independent, and ready for anything-so you'd better be ready, too.
