SUS: Student Profile


What is your passion?

“Pop culture and media…movies, television, and music. That’s why all areas of performance arts interests me.”

What do you like most about performance art?

“You can express emotion in a way that’s deeper than the norm. It’s more satisfying and fulfilling than other ways of expression.”

How do you see yourself contributing to the world of art and what does that mean to you?

“I want to become an actor who is known for breaking the mold. I want to show that an actor can be successful without fitting or conforming to the unrealistic and unattainable standards of Hollywood. It would mean a lot because I have those kind of people to look up to, so I want to be that for someone else.”
