I am a third year student pursuing a degree involving theatre, English, and Spanish. Theatre is my passion, but I love the reading and writing that goes into English. And learning a second language is pretty awesome. Outside of school, I enjoy community theatre, reading tons of great books (I have a few I can recommend if you want me to), and playing tabletop roleplaying games (Dungeons & Dragons being the most popular).
