“One of the many joys of teaching at The Academy in the summer is meeting diverse students from all over the world. They vary in age and background, and what they all have in common is the passion and desire to learn acting. It is my honor to nurture their creativity, to let each one of them know they matter, what they are pursuing as storytellers matter, and they are accepted here at The Academy.”
