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-Yous

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.
