Since I grew up way out in the country, I had to wait until I got to Louisville to study dance. I always knew I had it on the inside.
At the time, the School was in the basement of the School of Music (where I was studying Voice). I started taking 1 class/wk. A fraternity brother of mine was going out with one of the girls in the Corp and he took class with me also. He broke up with her, but I kept going.
To get into the School of Music, I sang “All for the Best” from Godspell. I have always loved vaudeville. A few years later, I rapped this song in a production in Cincinnati – when rap was just becoming mainstream.
My Pre-Med training included college-level Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics & Physics while still in high school, thru the Advanced Placement (AP) program. I understand and can make sense of all that highly technical and scientific text.
The Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program (KY GSP) was a milestone in my life. This was one of the best experiences of my life! For the first time, I was around people that were as driven and motivated to do something with their life as I was.
KY GSP was created in 1983 to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. The program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience.
