Exams, Stress, Performances, Oh My!

Exams, Stress, Performances, Oh My!

As you have seen the semester is coming to an end, and unlike other college kids we are not only studying for finals here, but also trying to stay in tip top shape for our upcoming performances. There is a lot of preparation happening; thank goodness winter break is coming up! Can’t wait to see my family!

Stress is a common feeling among the Juilliard students around this time of year, but luckily our passion is greater than any amount of stress we feel.

A few things that I have to remember:

1. I'd rather feel the weight of the world here than at any other school.

2. Hard work pays off.

3. One step (or leap in my case) at a time is better than no steps at all.

4. Ask for care packages (they help when it comes to stress) 

This is a picture of Class of 2018 rejoicing after our 1st informal showing. Love these kids

The past two weeks have been physically exhausting but so rewarding as I get ready to perform my first BIG JUILLIARD SEASON. & what is even more rewarding is sharing it with these talented kiddos.

Clearly running off of excitement and adrenaline, but that will only heighten when I see my native skyline (Dallas) in less than two weeks.  Excited to see my mama & hug her tight!
