Get to Know Your Student Advisor

What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?
Phantom of the Opera

If you could pick any Broadway star to have coffee with, who would it be and why?
Neil Patrick Harris, HANDS DOWN! Besides being one of the most talented people in the entertainment business, he also seems to be one of the more normal celebrities that still know how to have fun and not take life to seriously.

What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?
Wicked. I came to NYC while I lived in Wyoming with my high school to compete in a National Theatre Competition. It was my first time seeing Broadway and NY, and I fell in love with both at the same time.

What are some things that most people don’t know about you?
Hmm….I usually can’t find jeans in my size at most department stores. So, I know how to sew.
