After graduation it becomes more and more clear that Wagner College was without a doubt, the best place for me to find myself as a person and as a performer. Wagner College has made me as prepared for this crazy field as one can be, and I think this is the most valuable thing we could have received. You all hold an insanely special place in my heart, and I thank my lucky stars you all touched my life in the profound ways that you have.”
