I want to explore music that I not only enjoy listening to, but I also enjoy playing.
I will remember the soul and spirit of each cast and how much I have learned from other people's experiences, loves and flaws. The best part of theater is the people and the spirit.
I feel like I’ve been given the tools here to be able to learn and analyze these issues, and through the Peck School I’ve learned how to portray this in my acting.
Although graduate school can be extremely taxing and stressful, it has been the best school experience that I have had. What I am loving is that I am pursuing something I am extremely passionate about while surrounded by colleagues who have the same passion, and together we support one another to thrive.
Meeting all of the incredible and talented people, students and faculty members is the most valuable experience I could ever get from these two years. Here, at the Peck School of the Arts and generally speaking at UWM, I am impressed with the mutually considerate relationships and the approaches that teachers and students demonstrate toward each other.
If anyone had told me 10 years ago that I would be back in college in a Theatre degree program at this point in my life, I would probably have laughed out loud. But working with others who are as fascinated with how stage performances happen as I am has added a whole new dimension to my life. I may not be a traditional student, but I am certainly thrilled with my decision to become part of UWM's Theatre program at the Peck School of the Arts.
I want to help people whose voices aren’t represented in society. It’s giving them a voice through theatre while helping to heal wounds.
