  1. Testimonials

Being here and doing what we have done has made me realize that I am capable of so much more than I thought. I am so thankful for what I have learned and experienced here, and I hope I can carry this momentum through the rest of my career—Erin Mizer

Before this trip, theatre was like a friend to me. It was a hobby, a place of work, something to study and something to keep me entertained. Now, it is something completely different. It is a passion—Dina Sheikh

I feel as though I have opened myself up to a lot of new ideas, and feel far more aware and respectful of the world outside of my own country, as well as respectful of my home and where I come from—Shane Davis
