“[On the 2016 J-Term to New York City] we saw something like 15 shows in two weeks, including Hamilton. We took a bunch of master classes with different casting directors, agents, and composer Andrew Lippa, and went to equity auditions. It was nerve-wracking at first, but once I got there I was surprised by how much I felt at ease—they wanted me to succeed. It showed me that there is so much I can do as an actor; there are so many opportunities.”
