Briefly describe how you would contribute to implementing the goals of the Theatre Arts Student Council.
I am currently involved in both the Acting concentration and the Theatre Design concentration at the school. Because of this I believe that I could provide incite in bring together the tech side of theatre with the performing side. I work closely with both sides and understand that there can be a disconnect and would love to be given the chance to have my voice heard. Also, I have been fallowing the Black Live Matter protests very closely over the past year and I would defiantly consider myself an ally of the movement. I want to be able to give a voice to students who feel that they are not properly represented in the program, whether that be students of color, the trans community, students who don’t fit a particular “body standard”, and any other marginalized group. I think it is important to not take a stance as a “white savor”, but rather come across as an ally that empathizes, and sincerely wishes see change made.
Briefly describe your relevant past experience that would support your work as a representative on the Theatre Arts Student Council.
Through out high school I was a very active member with my schools theatre club. I worked on and off stage, while acting in the shows I was also head of Scenic design and construction, prop master, and eventually I became president of the Drama Guild my senior year. I have a lot of experience organizing event, advocating for our schools theatre program, and communicating with faculty of the school. Here at Marymount I like to help out on shows whenever I can. I work in the shop and help out at paint nights for the main stages, and have worked on a few of STAM’s productions.
