I decided to come to Gallaudet because my high school participation in the Academic Bowl brought me to the campus so I was already feeling at home here. After arriving, I just drove right into theatre arts. For my Honors Capstone, I wrote and directed my own play, “”Baggage”” for Gallaudet’s Spring 2019 production. I’ve learned so much, particularly about leadership skills and how to work with a team to create a final superb product. I will be doing my one-year apprenticeship with the Shakespeare Theatre Company and hope to eventually obtain an MFA degree in costume design.
