What drew you to the Mike Curb MA in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership program?

I was drawn to the Mike Curb MA CECL program for the simple reason that I would be encouraged to create and/or design something addressing an issue within my own community. I am here for the freedom and encouragement to research something that can have a positive impact in relation to dancers and the overall dance community.

What do you hope to accomplish during your time in program?

During my CECL journey, I will network with influential people, be inspired to push my comfort zone in deciding on an applied project and build a skill set to create the best of my ability an awesome applied project. I look forward to gaining perspective about being a cultural leader, creating ideas of note, and accomplish an enterprising mastery.
