"BADA has taught me a lot of things, but one thing that I’ll always be grateful for is the space they allowed me to push myself beyond myself. BADA challenged me to take on roles that I’ve never thought I could do; they challenged me to see beyond my “type”; but, most importantly, they challenged me to be a better student and artist."
