What made you decide to join Zeta?
I decided to join Zeta because I found myself looking for a group of people who I could connect to on an intimate scale, yet still have similar professional goals and aspirations for our futures.
What are you involved in on campus besides Zeta?
I am a Student Ambassador at the Visitor's Center (#SAMBA), Ambassador for the Department of Performing Arts, I'm the Events Director for Kidding Around, I work with Emerson Stage and student theatre in a variety of different disciplines, from acting to directing and everything in between.
How has Zeta helped you professionally and personally?
Professionally, it has helped me on a large scale like finding the right internship for me, to on a small scale when it's as simple as getting a Zeta to look over my cover letter for me, or just that dash of confidence I need in an interview or in the work space. Personally, it has given me a support system like no other; a group of people who I know will hear me and be there for me unconditionally. It has made me feel safe and loved during my time art Emerson.
What are three professional goals/aspirations you have?
-To be respected and remembered for my work
-To be doing something I am actually passionate about
-To be a supportive leader
