I will benefit from Rutgers not only from the training but also from the variety of people that I will meet. Being enrolled at Interlochen Arts Academy for four years, I have come to notice that the majority of learning and inspiration comes from the people who surround me.

Our theater department was planning to perform the play by Frederick Durrenmatt’s “The Visit”. Two days before auditioning, we learned that we did not have the rights to the play. Our director, Gulsherin Dubash, decided to combine “The Visit,” “Ubu Roi” and “The Inspector General.” By having three hour rehearsals every day for a play that has not been written yet, we began to create a theatre piece. We choose keywords from all three plays, such as justice, greed...
