"I am a 2013 graduate of Dartmouth College and African and African-American Studies major originally from Charlotte, NC. At Dartmouth, I chaired the Black Underground Theater Association, was the 2013 Dodd Playwright Awardee, and the inaugural recipient of the William Cook-Louise Cook Jacobs Award. I am a producer, playwright, and actress and worked as an artist and administrator with Northern Stage Theater in White River Junction, VT before starting my Masters in International Education at UNC Chapel Hill. I will begin the Cultural Studies and Literacies PhD program at UNC Chapel Hill this fall. The support of AAAS faculty was crucial throughout my undergraduate work and I continued to work with AAAS faculty and staff to support projects at Northern Stage and during my graduate work."
