Actress Wanted - comedy short

Looking for an actress to help shoot a short comedic/mocumentary-style short film, dabbling with the concept of cheating on tests for school. The concept of the piece chronicles the idea of students playing footsie as the "new craze" for cheating or sharing answers on school exams. The overall concept and subject matter will make for fantastic parody and absurdity. I am looking for someone in the age range of roughly 20 years (obviously someone who doesn't look older than college age). No experience necessary.
