Describe your favorite Berklee experience so far.

Listening to Chita Rivera speak in a live Q&A with Boston Conservatory students was an unforgettable experience. It was so amazing to get to connect with a master of the field and absorb some of her wisdom, advice, stories, and lessons. She is such a light, and getting to share the excitement with my classmates made it even more special.

When you think about your favorite class so far, what is one example of why you enjoyed it?

The work we do in the musical theater program is transcendent, plunging us into the depths of ourselves in order to connect to and unlock our creative, artistic beings. In my Voice and Speech class, I love how we spend time deconstructing our individual speech habits and how we formed our own points of tension. The work is communal, healing, and instantly improves one's connection to the text and their voice; it's beautiful to witness.

What is your favorite part about studying and living in Boston? 

Boston is such an amazing city. It is rich with great history, cool niche shops, beautiful hikes, and the sea! There are also countless places to hear live music, eat good food, and get connected with other students from other schools. There's always something to do!

What is one piece of advice you would give to someone applying to Berklee College of Music or Boston Conservatory at Berklee?

Show the school who you are without fear. Boston Conservatory embraces artists with a sense of self, so the best thing you can do is share what makes you who you are. Don't hold back and take a chance; Boston Conservatory nurtures individuality and innovation.

Where is your favorite place on campus?

The Fishbowl. It's a gorgeous dance studio that one can't help but want to work in. It's pulsing with creative energy, and even just looking at it is enough to give me the motivation I need to get through my day.

Why did you choose Berklee?

I choose Berklee because I want to be around the artists and creative minds of the future. I've gone to arts schools since age 11, and I knew that the best thing I could do for myself was completely immerse myself in art. Berklee is pulsing with inspiration, ambition, and devotion to making art.

What are your plans for after graduation?

My plan is to work as an actor both in TV/film and on Broadway, national tours, and the West End. I'm interested in any and every genre of work, and I would love to work on the production team of a show alongside acting in it.

What have you enjoyed most about the live shows you’ve been involved in at Berklee?

I started at Berklee in the Zoom and hybrid era, so my live work has been limited. But even in an online setting, we had so many opportunities to work on virtual shows and showcases. My favorite experience so far was filming my showcase piece, "Up the Ladder to the Roof," with my cohort in the streets of Boston; the energy is unparalleled.

Where do you hope to perform this coming year?

My main hope for this year is to perform as much as possible. I've missed live theater so much, and I hope to perform on campus in all sorts of work, while also aiming to work around the city of Boston in any shows I can get myself involved with!
