Highlights of My Four Years at Juilliard
• Taking part in Juilliard’s PEPS (Performing Educational Programs for Schools) community engagement program was definitely a highlight. During the last month of our freshman year, I created and performed a program with seven classmates and through PEPS we toured it to middle and elementary schools that summer.

• Another was having the freedom to create my own dances. I had the honor of working with Juilliard415 this year, and researching baroque music and dance was a wonderful project both artistically and scholastically.

• Getting to know wonderful artists on- and offstage. I live in the Residence Hall as an RA, which has given me many outlets to connect with fellow students. I’m always blown away when I see my suitemates or neighbors practicing their art!
