"Being at Associated Studios has shaped me as a performer and a person in ways that I have never imagined were possible. Every day is challenging but pushing me to my full potential, and I feel that because of the small class sizes I get the individual feedback that I need to develop. The industry exposure is amazing and I am always grateful that I get to work with such amazing accomplished people!"
