When do you plan on graduating? I am set to graduate in December 2020.
Why did you major in Theatre and English? When I was 16 years old I played Jo March in my high school’s version of Little Women the musical and I fell in love with theatre. I’ve always loves stories so being immersed in the stories as an actress is a natural fit. Reading, music, theatre have since become the biggest parts of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
What are your plans for after graduation? I plan to become a professional actress for a few years and then go to grad school to eventually become a theatre professor. I want to be able to see students evolve as artists and to watch the art of theatre itself change and grow with time.
What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of? Playing Brutus in Julius Caesar is the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done on stage. Shakespeare’s writing is full of double meanings, emotion, and drama. To paint a world with words like that is an incredible feeling. Playing Brutus made me feel strong and empowered to the point that I feel Brutus will always be apart of me.
What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating? My capstone project is all about inspiring high school students to follow their dreams and pursue theatre as a career. I hope to inspire at least one student to become a theatre major.
What do you do for fun? For fun I love to travel, spend time outside, create, and read! (Hence the English major).
What else do you want people to know about you? College has been one of the best times of my life thus far. I have the freedom to be who I want to be and create the life I want to live. My friends have become my family and the faculty have all become great mentors that have helped shape me into the actress I am today.
