My private voice professor, John Gates, has been my biggest source of encouragement these past three years. He's given me so much to work with in my voice and in any performances. It's special that we get to work together for all four years of my degree—he notices my growth and pushes me to go further. My favorite thing about John is his honesty.
My favorite class here so far has been Reading the Border: Gender, Texts and Performance with Professor Thelma Jiménez-Anglada. We read a lot of biographies of immigrants and their experiences of crossing the Mexico-United States border. Learning more about border culture and policy was special to me as a Mexican-American woman.
I love the lemon bars for dessert!
My favorite place on campus is the hill above the garden. I love this spot because it's perfect during any season—for sledding in the winter, doing homework in the fall and for laying out and getting some sun in the spring.
My favorite thing about campus is the community. I'm thankful for how responsive we are as a student body to problems that impact one another.

My favorite LU memory so far has been performing John Gay's The Beggar’s Opera my sophomore year at the PAC.
