Scholar & Artist
“At Trinity I was able to grow academically while also pursuing my passion for ballet. I am now headed to Indiana University Jacobs School of Music to pursue my goal of dancing for a professional ballet company!”
On support at Trinity
Because Trinity is such a small school, it was easier to find where I socially fit in and find a good group of friends who supported me. During my sophomore year, Trinity really supported me artistically because they were able to work with my academic schedule so I was able to leave school to take morning ballet classes. With that, I was able to keep my academic focus while also pursing my passion: training to become a better dancer. I attended three years of classes at the Kennedy Center, in Washington D.C., and missed school to do this.
On the benefit of Trinity
Coming to Trinity has benefited me in many ways, including my faith life and learning more about serving my community. I have been able to grow in my faith life and knowledge through what I learn from my theology classes but also through the Kairos retreat. Kairos was a changing experience for me and it has helped me see the importance of God in my life. I have learned more about service with the different opportunities Trinity offers throughout the year that I have been able to make an impact in my community.
On her future
I will be attending Indiana University in Bloomington, Jacobs School of Music to study ballet performance and get a minor in business and communications. My goals after college are to join a professional ballet company and become a professional dancer.
On what she’ll miss
I will be miss the sense of community at Trinity, and also some of my favorite teachers who have supported me during my time at Trinity, specifically Mr. Blackledge and Madame Zellers.
