What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? I enrolled in the program to bridge the gap between what I learned during my undergraduate degree and my work experience. This program will give me a deeper understanding of the foundational aspects of any creative organization and its operations.
What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I am extremely excited to meet my future classmates and learn about their experiences and what brought them to this program. I am also looking forward to taking the “Cultural Nonprofits” class.
If you could have lunch with one person (living or dead), who would it be? I would have lunch with Georgia O’Keeffe because she is my favorite artist, and I would love to hear more about her process and technique from her. It would also be interesting to hear her take on how people analyze her work.
Where are you from? Chicago, IL, USA
