Fact: I have a physical disability known as Cerebral Palsy as a result of being born extremely early (I am one of triplets.). As I see it this enables me to tell stories in unique and interesting ways.

I have a physical disability known as Cerebral Palsy as a result of being born extremely early (I am one of triplets). As I see it, this enables me to tell stories in unique and interesting ways. I chose to come to this wonderful university because I felt as if the theatre department was a family. I immediately wanted to be a part of it. I hope to be able to glorify God through the art of storytelling. I am not quite sure what career path that will take me on, but I am eager to see what plans God has for me.
