What is your favorite place on campus and why?

Courtyard outside of Literatea because it is beautiful, relaxing, and a great place to get work done among other students.

What is your go-to place for a delicious snack/meal on or around campus?

Dulce at the USC Village

What is your favorite thing about Los Angeles?

The weather. Coming from the east coast, the fact that it never gets cold here never ceases to amaze me.

What advice would you share with students applying to music schools right now?

Relax. Yes, you should give it your all and try your best, but at the end of the day you’ll end up where you’re meant to be so try not to stress too much.

Why did you choose USC Thornton?

Location. There are about 1,000 reasons why I chose Thornton but almost all of them circle back to the fact that it’s located in Los Angeles.
