Most important thing I’ve learned so far in my major:

Can’t live without:
I’m most proud of:
My cooking skills. Food is my greatest joy.
Favorite place at DePaul:
Probably the grass area outside the rectory. It’s beautiful and peaceful.

I love going to school in Chicago because:
My family is here, Lake Michigan is magnificent and the summers are perfect.

As a Theatre student, going to school in Chicago allows me to:
Make professional connections and have access to free (or cheap) tickets to a lot of different kinds of theater.
Favorite Theatre School production so far:
Four Twins, directed by Jenn BeVard. It was a classroom production, and Jenn transformed the room into a party atmosphere from the '70s. The physical work in the production was stunning and revelatory of character and story. The entire experience was a wild ride and changed my ideas of what I thought was possible.
