I used to take voice lessons over Skype with Dr. Marian Kyle, who is a vocal teacher at University of Mobile. She and my mom went to school together, and when it came time to look at colleges, she asked me to come study voice with her down here. When I got here, God pressed it on my heart that UM is where I needed to be. I have been interested in musical theater since middle school, and I know I can use it as a mission field. I knew for sure it was what I wanted to do when I got involved in community theater in high school. The Alabama School of the Arts has the best program that I have seen, along with the expert faculty. It is incredible to see their investment in me grow and flourish. All of the professors work to make sure that I am focused on my goal, and it is priceless to me to have that.
