Why Metro Arts?
I enjoy working with students and the diversity at Metropolitan Arts Institute. I feel that I am able to make a difference on an institutional level. It is wonderful to work in such an atmosphere of tolerance, acceptance and creativity. Metro has a wonderful faculty and staff and an amazing student body.
