Acting BFA with a Concentration in Playwriting

Academic Year


Briefly describe how you would contribute to implementing the goals of the Theatre Arts Student Council.

I would facilitate discussion between upperclassmen and lowerclassmen, as well as direct feedback to the faculty and take relevant suggestions, ideas, and issues to the appropriate places. My communication skills will help strengthen the theatre department as a whole, hopefully by creating a more tightly knit, supportive, and uplifting community.

Briefly describe your relevant past experience that would support your work as a representative on the Theatre Arts Student Council.

I am an Acting BFA with a Concentration in Playwriting, so not only am I knowledgeable on both sides of that, I also am familiar with the members, style, work and culture of both concentrations. I have spent a lot of time developing new work with members of both concentrations, and have spent extensive time as a TA mentoring incoming Acting BFAs in their classes - my work with new students as well as my existing familiarity with students, staff and multiple concentrations within the theater department would help foster a stronger community at MMC as a whole as I facilitate communication between multiple parties.
