I am grateful for the creative learning experiences and challenging opportunities I had in the Performing Arts Program at John Jay. I received an outstanding foundation in music and theatre through my performance opportunities with Concert Choir, Chorale, Vocal Jazz, Treble Makers, theatre productions, and acting classes. In addition to working on stage, the rigorous behind the scenes experiences, both assistant directing the musicals at John Jay Middle School, and directing a One-Act play were also invaluable. Finally, apprenticing with JJTV was another intensive, once in a life time opportunity for a high school student. I was immersed in the arts throughout my four years at John Jay, and it is because of those experiences that I am pursuing Music and Theatre in college. I will always feel a strong connection to my teachers and the arts at John Jay.
