Classification: Senior

Track: Acting

Describe a memorable event or image in an ACU play in which you have performed, directed, designed or crewed or one you've seen here.
In Metamorphoses, while changing backstage during the "Eros and Psyche" scene, I would get chills every night as one of the narrators said her line: "It's just inevitable.  The soul wanders in the dark until it finds love.  And so, wherever our love goes, there we find our soul." 

How has faith impacted your journey as an artist?
Faith is my art's ignition. Something about it I don't understand sparks a restlessness in me that I don't feel relief from until I create something.  And after that release, I feel a type of peace and pride that I don't feel from anything else. 

What advice do you have for a prospective theatre major?
You were accepted into this department for a reason; there is something you were meant to learn here.  Every moment is an opportunity to learn, don't squander it.  But remember to relish it!  Take the memories and lessons you will make and learn, fold them up, and squeeze them as tightly as you can!  I guarantee you will have moments when you are ready to collapse from exhaustion, and tears will come.  But when they do, take out those lessons and memories, and I guarantee they will make you smile.
