Ravassa grew up in several countries, spending her childhood between Colombia and the US, and is therefore fluent in 4 languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. She was interested in acting from a young age and her first role was in a local production of The Sound of Music in which she played Gretel.[2] She studied in Spain and Italy, and was then inspired by the power of socio-political change through Theatre of the Oppressed with Augusto Boal in Brazil.[1] She was educated at Boston College, receiving her Theatre Arts degree, as well as undergoing a year of acting for film/TV at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.[1]

In 2010, Ravassa made an appearance in the Disney film Step Up 3D where she starred as the character Kristin. In 2014 she appeared in two episodes of Showtime's The Affair as Jules.[3] Ravassa has also done work as a voice actress. Her video game appearances include her role as Taliana Martinez from the game Grand Theft Auto V in 2013,[4] and her well known portrayal of Sombra from Blizzard's 2016 game Overwatch.[5]
