Throughout my four years at Appalachian State University, I dove deep into my major, Theatre Performance, and explored my minor, English Studies. It was a very challenging, learning process for me as an independent student who has had to support herself financially. The hardest part was managing time. Taking at least 15 credit hours every semester, working at least 25 hours to pay bills and finding time in between to audition for shows to further my craft, was at times, easier said than done. However, I graduated in May 2017 and I am proud of my accomplishments but look forward to surpassing them with more extensive endeavors.
