“I’m really proud of one assignment that’s going to be part of the student show in Gittins Gallery in the Arts building. The theme was, “Portrait without a head” about how you represent someone without physically representing them. So, I did my mom and made a 36-inch-long meth pipe. She was an addict and passed away when I was 12 so I felt comfortable that I could tell this story of her, through my eyes.”

“I remember the long sigh from the crowd filling the air as I missed qualifying for the 2014 Olympic team by just a few points. Considering that I prematurely returned from an ACL injury, defying the odds and opinions of doctors, I wasn’t devastated by the news. I was however terrified about the future.”

“I have this sense of service toward my fellowmen. To be out in the field responding to those serving would be the ultimate dream—to help them while they’re sacrificing so much.”

“I moved to New York City from Lima, Peru, by myself when I was 18. In order to support myself, I found a job as a waiter, and I fell in love with the food industry.”

“Opera gives you a chance to really dive into human nature and the reasons people do the things they do, what drives them. A lot of arts come together — dance, song, acting, music, set artists, costume designers, composers, writers — to do this one thing.”
