Why did you join LCC?
My first year at UCLA, I wanted to get involved with acting. It's a passion of mine. I got a flyer of the first LCC auditions from a friend at AACF. So I decided to give it a try and got in. It was a stellar experience being part of the first Asian American theatre company at UCLA. Derek, Dave, and Randy are swell people.

What did you learn or gain from LCC?
My experiences in LCC were definitely awesome experiences that I will always treasure. It was such a blessing from God that I was able to pursue my passion of acting while I was in college. I've learned so much about the art of performance and working with a theatre company... offstage, backstage, and onstage. I miss those times of bonding with these people. I can't describe the feelings and the rush that goes on right before the show, during the show, and right after a show. The group feels it together and's amazing. There's truly a sense of unity...and that feels phenomenal. I love acting and performing with people. LCC gave me such a great opportunity to do just that. LCC is a big part of the reason why I can look back at my college years and be assured that I've made the most of every opportunity.
