"As a student, I was constantly astounded by the passionate, intelligent, thoughtful, hilarious collaborators I found on this campus: the talented students driven to create. This position allowed me not only to continue cultivating relationships within the Stanford arts community, but also to refine my capabilities as an arts practitioner and educator, all while pursuing my own creative projects. I am grateful to my mentors for facilitating professional connections, for helping to equip me with the functional tools to contribute to academic arts programs, and for giving me autonomy over event planning and producing.
