What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? The interdisciplinary nature of the program as well as its focus in leading from a place of creativity. It is like an MBA for artists, which is exactly what I am looking for at the moment.
What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I’m excited for the business-oriented classes. My undergrad program was very specialized in musical theatre training, so I am excited to experience more academic classes. I believe that the combination of both worlds will blend extremely well.
Which leader or influential figure inspires you the most and why? Stacey Abrams, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, people that are persistent in their fights for moral and ethical justice. And Bianca Del Rio 🙂
