Visit our Living the Mission page to read about Cynthia’s internship. “Exploring how to use theater as a tool for social justice was really important to me. So the idea of attending a school that has social justice as its core mission spoke to me loudly. I think it yelled for me to come to school here, and I’m really happy to be part of this community.”
