Wriggling with joy(ful anxiety), bedazzled in a shimmery orange leotard, I dove into acting as a rainbow trout in my kindergarten’s rendition of Pearl: An Underwater Adventure. As I waddled onstage with my fellow fish-friends, my 5-year-old heart fell hard for acting.
My love for theatre has since grown as I've played roles of the more human variety (not to slander all the glorious robot roles out there)! My pivotal "so this is love" point came in high school, when I was cast as Ma Kirby in Thornton Wilder’s “The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden.” I absolutely despised her, and I learned more about empathy through her than any other role. She was simultaneously nothing like me and within me. I was hooked.
Having trained at U.Va. and subsequently in RADA's Shakespeare program, I am continuously struck by the power of this weird, wacky, wonderful art form called theatre. It's a truly transformative mode of storytelling - one that inspires empathy, fuels collaboration, and encourages human relatedness. I want to be a part of that.
