It still feels a bit surreal. I'm thrilled to announce that I've been selected as one of the twelve 2016 George J Mitchell Scholars from across the US. I'll be traveling to Dublin in the fall of 2015 to pursue my MFA in Theatre Directing at Trinity College's The Lir Academy. To say it's an honor is an understatement. Each year the US Ireland Alliance sponsors the George J Mitchell Scholarship which sends students with outstanding scholastic achievements, commitments to their communities and contributions to their fields to Ireland for a year of post-graduate study. There has only ever been one other CUNY student to receive this award- I'm honored to be representing Brooklyn College and the CUNY system internationally.
