Words to Live By:
"Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I am permitted to hold for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." --George Bernard Shaw

Favorite ATP Memory:
Melissa's 'Remedy' scene...
or Me forgetting my lines on stage and having everyone in the audience think that I have been arrested and that I do illegal drugs... ooopppsss

When I think of Awareness through Performance, I think of...
...All of my privilege...

Involvement with ATP has had this impact on me:
It has helped me understand and comprehend my privilges and others lack thereof. It has helped me see even more clearly than before how unequal things are in societies around the globe. This gives me the drive to continue working for change through being active in student government and activist organizations. It has given me a reason to keep fighting for the equality that everyone deserves.
