What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?
Working together with Charles A. Dana Professor of Theatre Karen Kirkham to improve my personal theatrical performance and the performances of others. Seeing my ideas come to life on the stage was a great thing to witness, and it has helped my confidence in my work. Additionally, my involvement in the Department of Anthropology had a significant impact on my personal perspectives. One of my absolute favorite classes was with Professor of Anthropology Karen Weinstein, Contesting Biological Normalcy, and I still think about our class discussions to this day.
