“I never liked acting… the thought of saying anything on the stage in front of so many people terrified me. It was a school visit to New York City that ignited my hidden passion for theater. I’m now attending one of the top-ranked drama schools in the world at NYU. I honestly feel that I am ready to face whatever's coming in the future.”

“I feel like the teachers in my courses have not only taught me the course content but ignited my passion for the subject that was missing before I came to AISG.
