How did you decide on RCAH?
I actually landed in the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities accidentally. I’m a double major with RCAH and Theatre and I mistakenly thought Theatre fell underneath the RCAH. I love being in RCAH now though!

What are your academic interests?
I am interested in acting along with feminism--especially as it pertains to women of color--and learning about intersectionality and systemic racism.

What are your favorite aspects of the RCAH experience?
I love how close my peers and professors are to each other and the intense dialogues we have both inside and outside the classroom.

What are your future plans?
My short term goals include getting an internship working and acting at a theatre company in Chicago this summer. My long term goals include starting my own mentoring program/nonprofit in Detroit that would introduce inner city youth to all aspects of the arts.

What are your hobbies and interests within and outside of RCAH?
Within RCAH I enjoy working with the My Brother’s/Sister’s Keeper mentoring program and spending time with all of the youth who participate in it. Outside of RCAH I love to do any form of exercise that isn’t cardio, and to read and perform.

Have you ever taken part in Study Abroad/Study Away at MSU? If so, which programs?
I have not taken part in any Study Away or Study Abroad programs but my goal is to go to London during the summer of 2017 with the Theatre department.
