3) Q: What year are you?

4) Q: Tell me a bit about Me Too Monologues- how was it working with the cast? What did you learn about yourself/what did you learn?
A: Working with the cast was phenomenal, because each cast member felt such an urgency to do his or her monologue justice. The energy during rehearsals was great, and everyone was super excited to help out. If I learned one thing from the Me Too Monologues it was that you are not alone in your problems. There is inevitably someone on Duke's campus that shares your emotions and experiences. I guess the thing I learned about myself is that I have a lot of fun putting myself out there and not holding back in performances.
5) Q: What’s your favorite memory so far from your years at Duke?
A: My favorite Duke memory was performing with Rhythm and Blue at the Freshman Orientation A Cappella Concert this year. The crowd was enormous and extremely energetic! Singing in that concert was such a rush!
6) Q: Are you studying abroad? If so, where and why?
A: Im doing the Duke in London Drama Program this summer, because we will see over 30 plays and musicals while we are there, and learn from some of the best actors in London. In the fall, I'll be attending the Duke in New York: Arts and Media program in order to get a head start in NYC and experience all that the city has to offer. I'm looking into getting an internship on Broadway.
7) Q: What’s your favorite dessert?
