Tell us about your education!

Performing in the cast of Six Flags’ “Because It’s Christmas”

I’m currently a senior at Spelman College, studying Women’s Studies with a concentration in performing arts. I’ve been involved in the performing arts since I was in elementary school. My areas of training include voice, dance, and drama. Some of the highlights of my career include performing back up for Jazz Vocalist Kathleen Bertrand, performing in Six Flags Over Georgia theater shows, and performing at the 2017 Taste of Soul music festival.

Where are you originally from and why are you in Atlanta (if you aren’t originally from here)? 

I’m originally from Jersey City, New Jersey but I grew up in Lithonia, Georgia. I’m in Atlanta because the majority of my family lives here, I attend college here, and Atlanta influences everything!
