Ta da! I did it! I graduated summa cum laude from Florida State University with a B.A. in Theatre and a Spanish minor. These past four years blew by so quickly, but I loved just about every second of it! I am honored and privileged to call myself an alumnus of Florida State.
Since I owe you all an update, here’s a brief brag list of my activities/accomplishments this past year:
- Performed in the opera chorus for Florida State Opera’s La Traviata and Prince of Players – the academic premiere of renowned American composer Carlisle Floyd’s latest opera. Prince of Players marked my 10th production with Florida State Opera!
- Performed as The Witch in Florida State Opera’s outreach production of Hansel and Gretel, which toured Leon County elementary schools.
- Cast in my first ever film at FSU’s College of Motion Picture Arts.
- Inducted into the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society for my engagement with leadership, international experiences, and research during my undergraduate career at FSU.
- Named Theatre Forum speaker by my peers for the School of Theatre’s Class of 2017. (Thanks guys!!!)
As for my upcoming plans, I’m currently wrapping up another week of outreach performances as The Witch in Hansel and Gretel. Afterwards, I’ll substitute teach various levels of Spanish for Virginia Beach City Public Schools. I’m currently awaiting some news that will decide my future for the next few years…I can’t say much yet (I don’t want to jinx it!), but I’ll be sure to share it here if/when it becomes official!
