Make your own path because this is your time to go after your goals and dreams. You have your future in your hands. My last major piece of advise is to please go to your classes, even if they are at 8:00 in the morning. That is one of the first and simplest ways to be successful in college, just to attend your classes.

Major/Concentration: BFA Drama (Theatre Education)

5 Year Goals: In five years, I hope to be a theatre teacher for high school students. I want to create a program that focuses on teaching theatre in a way that’s meanigful for everyone because I believe that it can make a mark in anyone’s life not matter who they are or how analytical/creative they are. I’m also working towards a math minor so that I can teach math as well, and so I hope that I will also be able to do that. Lastly, I’d love to begin applying for a grant and raising money to open a community theatre, but that’s the ultimate dream.

Hobbies: I love dancing, working out, drawing, and of course, watching shows and movies. Huge fan of New Girl because Jess is teacher and person goals.

Fun Facts: – I went to over 15 schools. I was a baby model for Macy’s. I played baby Aurora in Sleeping Beauty when I was only a few months old.

Advice for First Year Students: Don’t be afraid to steer away from the path. A lot of the majors have a recommended plan you can follow. However, these plans are meant to give you a nice starting point. When I first came to UNCG, I was scared to steer away from the path I began on which was a major in Technical Theatre, but when I got rid of that fear I was able to find a major I was much happier in. Even within my major, without the fear I have been able to take classes that fit me more individually even though they may not be what the handbook recommends.
