I have been in theater since I was five years old, both community and professionally. I recently attended NHSI summer theatre program "Cherubs" on Northwestern University's campus and have attended Interlochen Center for the Arts Summer Repertory theater program the previous two summers. I am very passionate about my craft and would like to learn as much as I can as I prepare for college and my career. I thought there are probably many more teenagers just like me so I decided to reach out to professionals I have met over the years to see if they would be interested in sharing their experiences and advice with us. From this idea stemmed my speaker series called "Behind the Scenes" in which I will host professionals in the industry to speak to aspiring theater students and entertainers like me.
