What was your most memorable moment or time at F&M?

There have been many moments, but my late April senior voice recital really tied together my college career beautifully. Studying voice with Gwynne Geyer has allowed me to connect the thought-driven mentality required to take on F&M academically with the pursuit of passion and joy I find in singing. At my recital, I was able to share my progress from the past four years with friends, family, teachers and peers. It was a moment that connected the satisfaction of hard work and learning with the joy of personal expression I've experienced here at F&M. I'll never forget that feeling. 

What did you enjoy most about the College?

While I enjoyed my experience, this school is undoubtedly a challenge and pushed me. But that's why I chose F&M -- I knew it would really test me. With the support of a great community, of smart, talented friends and genuinely interested professors, I proved to myself that I could better myself and overcome the challenges and the obstacles along the way. That self-belief is what I value most from my years here.

What are your plans for after graduation?

Things are still unfolding, but hopefully I will be moving to London shortly after graduation to work with an independent media production firm and pursue my interests in performance and production.
