This May I will graduate as a first generation college student with a BFA acting at a private performing arts college in the United States, but my trip abroad will require one year in London, England for my Masters in Arts: Filmaking and Film Acting. However, it has not been an easy road, and I am not finished with my education. Due to my family's financial standing I am completely dependent on myself to find funds for college, and although very independent I know when it's time to ask for help. I want to study abroad because its an opportunity to not only achieve my goals, but to show everyone back at home that it's not where you come from, it's where you're going that defines you. I want to study abroad so that I can further my education and share my art of story telling with the rest of the world and to incorporate the knowledge and inspiration of international studies into my unique style of acting and filmmaking. This video will show you just how dedicated I am, show you just a little bit of my humor and who I am as an artist, performer, and filmmaker.
