I used to not even be able to say the word “college” without completely freaking out. I had no idea what I wanted to do, and I refused to think about college. Then, I found my passion for acting and realized I could have a career as an actress. It was not until the beginning of my senior year that I actually started looking at college. I found The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and I knew that my future was about to begin. However, I ignored that feeling because I thought my heart was set on a different school. I finally realized that my true dream school was welcoming me with open arms. God was blessing me with such an amazing opportunity to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NY, a school I know I was meant to attend. I remembered that feeling of happiness and excitement, and now I am ready to start a new chapter of my life at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
