Why did you choose to major in Theater at Ursinus College?
Because theater has a very special place in my heart. It is something that has always fascinated me at a young age and still does. Seeing how many people love it to makes me love it even more. I love being to play different characters and being able to play someone that is entirely different from who I actually am as a person.

I have a metabolic disorder that sometimes limits my ability to perform well but I still am able to perform when I need to, it’s just a little weird at times.
