When I first walked into Stella Adler for my interview for the summer Shakespeare outreach program, I felt like I walked into an amazing historic place where many great actors have been in before. All of the walls were covered with pictures of the past succesful alums. That was all the inspiration I needed. After my four incredible weeks spent that summer surrounded by the best teachers I had to re-apply for the year long outreach program. I can not explain how thankful I am to the Stella Adler Studio of Acting Outreach program. It has become my home away from home. I will always treasure my expieriences there and the ones I am going to have in the future.
