How did you learn about ASU?
In 2013, the ASU theatre department hosted the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival state competition. My junior college theatre department traveled to San Angelo for the competition. It was my first time in the city and at the school. After that week of the festival and meeting some of the students enrolled in the theatre department, I knew that ASU was where I wanted to transfer to.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
I chose ASU because I really liked the size of the school and the city (not too big, not too small) and also because I felt that there was a lot of opportunity in San Angelo for me to grow.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is how you can get as much one-on-one time with a professor as you need.
What are some of your hobbies?
In my spare time, I really enjoy doing different types of makeup (fantasy, glamour, horror, etc).
Are you involved in any student organizations?
I am the Art and Film Chair for the University Center Program Council (UCPC) and the co-chair for homecoming this year. I’ve also been involved with Ram Round-Up, the Student Government Association, and I was the historian/pledge captain for Alpha Psi Omega (National Theatre Honor Society).
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
I currently work for the Center for Student Involvement, where I am the Art and Film chair for the University Center Program Council (UCPC).
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
One piece of advice I have to give is not procrastinate. Procrastination can be very hard in college because there are so many distractions, but being diligent and working hard before the play is key to success as a student. It’s something that I have a very hard time with, but I know that my end goal is to graduate and in order to do this, I need to be on top of my work.
