Class of 2016 B.F.A., Musical Theater

My two brothers and I began dancing early in life after our older sister, Felicia, passed away at 10 years of age. Through growing up in the dance studio, choir at school, and eventually theater, we grew as a family and connected to the arts in an incredibly special way.

I want to share the joy that theater has given me with others, and Boston Conservatory has prepared me to do that. I am incredibly honored and grateful to have this educational experience and to be surrounded by so many insanely talented young artists. I want to give others the same chance to fulfill their dreams.

In addition to having an active performance career, my goal is to teach and provide opportunities for young people to pursue their passions. I was in the Conservatory's production of Disney's On the Record, which was performed for youth throughout Greater Boston, including cancer patients and other young people who are not able to travel to a show.

When I was thinking about college, I wanted to find a place where I could become a well-rounded artist, able to communicate with diverse audiences. Boston Conservatory is that place. Here, I was pushed, motivated, and inspired as an actor and as a human being.
