Elyse Anderson ’17, Star on Stage

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at JHU chapter.

1.     Name: Elyse Anderson

2.     Major, Year: Art History, Sophomore

3.     Hometown: Boca Raton, FL

4.     Affiliated with: Alpha Phi, Peabody Singers, JHU Classical Ballet Company, JHU Theatre

5.     You can probably find me on the shuttle to Peabody!

6.     The best thing about Hopkins is the people! Being surrounded by a group of such talented, intelligent, and fun-loving individuals is the greatest feeling in the world.

7.     Something I’m especially proud of is being one of only six students from Hopkins to be in the Peabody Singers- the elite choir group at Peabody. Also, I studied for six weeks this past summer in Florence, Italy with a renowned Italian opera singer. She was definitely a tough teacher, but I’m really proud of the accomplishments and progress I made in singing while I was there.

8.     Something most people don’t know about me is I’m an Independent Coach for Team Beachbody! As an independent coach, I have the privilege of helping people and inspiring people to live healthier lives. Once school starts, every month I am going to lead a Fitness or Shakeology challenge with a small group of 3-5 people. The Fitness Challenges can be as simple as a squat or plank 30 day challenge, or as difficult as doing T25 together for 30 days. Overall, they’re a great way to bring people together as well as provide a support system for one another while trying to get in shape. Find me on Facebook if you’re interested!

9.     This year, I hope to do more theatre on campus! I plan on auditioning for the JHU Theatre’s fall play as well as audition for the Barnstormer’s musical in the spring.

10. In five years, I will be living in Florence studying to get an MFA in Opera. J

11. Next up for me is getting ready to start my Challenge Groups for Beachbody and starting another great year at the Hop
