Alexis's Story

My passion is musical theater.

I discovered my passion for musical theater by singing in front of my mother’s friends in our native language of Khmer. When I sang as a child, I would add emotions and dances into the performance. The music I sang always had a deep and important meaning about love and family. While singing, I am able to express how the music make me feel. This is how I realized that singing and acting were my passion and what I want to pursue.

Although I am afraid to be up on stage or to perform in front of people, I hope that I can overcome this fear soon by participating in a summer opportunity related to musical theater. I see myself enjoying a career in musical theater, not only just doing it for the fame or money, but because it is my and a big part of my life.

A Note from Mrs. Mims, Alexis's Mentor

I believe Alexis did not have an opportunity to receive any formal training in musical theater yet. Therefore, attending US Performing Arts Musical Theater will help her tremendously in acquiring the knowledge and skills to build her foundation in musical theater. This opportunity to attend the program will support Alexis by not only learning more about her passion area, but also by allowing her to connect with others (both peer and potential mentors) to share and support her journey in musical theater.
