Why did you Join
I’ve always loved performing. I was in a show choir through my theatre company back home and found that I truly missed the experience here at Ursinus - so I decided to try bring that same experience on to campus! There’s nothing like performing for a live audience, and singing and dancing just makes me so happy. I also love that we will eventually be able to bring our music to geriatric centers because sharing our talents with those who aren’t able to readily access things like music and art is a passion of mine. We take being able to sing and dance for granted so often, that it is a true joy to be able to bring our talents to those less fortunate. It only takes a little bit of thought and effort to really brighten someone else’s day.
