Performing and Media Arts and Information Science major

What are some highlights of your involvement in PMA?

Discovering ways I wanted to use film to impact the world in my classes and projects. Directing a play in Fall 2019. Bringing a screenplay I wrote to a class setting in Aoise Stratford’s class, which inspired future work to publish it in an unconventional way.

What are your favorite memories of PMA?

Creating a fashion film with Edy Kennedy, Ruby Que, and other classmates that helped share the story of a launch of a new clothing collection I created. Acting with Carolyn Goelzer my sophomore year with a group of people who inspire me today. Senior studio in Fall 2019!


Thank you to my professors who challenged my creative thinking from the first year of coming to Cornell and made me bolder to chase projects I dream of. Thank you to my classmates who inspired me to dream bigger and challenge myself in all parts of the arts. I am your biggest fangirl forever and always.
