Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Leonela Hernandez, Theatre Major

Name: Leonela Hernandez
Major: BFA Musical Theatre
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Fact: I was raised in Monterrey, Mexico and to learn English I joined Musical theatre and it became my passion.

I chose to come to Belhaven because ... I knew that being a part of a small program I would be able to have more opportunity on stage and be able to grow as a performer. I also wanted a school that was Christian oriented and Belhaven was the school for me.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven...My relationship with Dr. Sollish has been absolutely incredible, and the fact that he listens to me and helps me with any problems that I may have.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University...I have been able to get internships at important theatres like ZACH theatre in Austin, TX and it has helped me talk to other people into auditioning for the school.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Unforgettable
