Until, just recently when I received a generous stipend offer along with a costume apprenticeship at the conservatory, which I view as the path to my future in costume design and construction. My heart fluttered as the possibility of attending Point Park became real again. However, already set on continuing to work at the museum, I felt conflicted between the two great opportunities. So, I wrote just about the most persuasive proposal of my writing career to defer admission until the spring semester...

Then, in the spring, I will be relocating to Pittsburg, PA to join the conservatory program – it’s a win, win, win situation as now I will not have to miss out on any of the life-changing opportunities offered at both institutions! I honestly couldn't be happier, and there has been much singing, dancing and rejoicing around the house.
Finally, I'll end by stating that it is my firm believe that continuing to strengthen the lasting relationships I have made at the museum over the course of another season will allow me to bring strengthened skills, appreciation and an even greater, invigorated passion for costumes and living history to college and beyond.
