Theatre Pre Grad Intern Ja'Michael Darnell
As a result of my IE experience this semester, I made the decision to audition for three MFA programs in Playwriting. With the support provided by virtue of being selected an IE Kuhn Scholar, I am able to audition now for these graduate programs--while still in school! Making the decision of interning in this program was one of the best decisions I made during my college career. I will now enter into the last semester of my undergraduate career with more knowledge about playwriting and graduate school with a host of connections. All UT students should get the experience of being a part of the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre-Graduate School Internship.
In addition, as a result of IE I wrote a ten-minute play called The Electric Lady that was selected for the 2013 UT Bridge Festival and was requested to be produced again in the course, "Producing the Black Performing Arts." I will now enter into the last semester of my undergraduate career with more knowledge about playwriting and graduate school with a host of connections.
