In May of 2016, she graduated from USC School of Cinematic Arts, earning her MFA in Film and Television Production. Mallorie was selected to direct the prestigious school funded Advanced Production Project in the Fall of 2015 - a rom com musical called Mango Sticky Rice featuring original music and an all Asian-American cast.
