How did the LLC help you transition from your hometown to Texas State? The Acting LLC has provided what feels like a second family. There is always someone that I can hangout with, yet there is also space to be alone if I need to be. I've enjoyed cooking in the Retama main lobby with the rest of the LLC members.

How has the LLC helped you academically? I've appreciated having someone in the same classes and community to turn to. 

Who is your favorite professor and why? Neil Patrick Stewart, because every time I am in his class, I am challenging my preconceived ideas about acting. 

What is a fun fact about you? I have 5 siblings.
