Alumni Spotlight - Rachel Sedlak
Rachel Sedlak is a rising sophomore at Emerson College in Boston, MA. She is studying for a B.F.A. in Theatre and Performance and is trying to decide her minor. Despite the pandemic, Rachel was able to attend her performance courses in a hybrid form. Being allowed the opportunity to physically go to her classes once a week was absolutely incredible since theatre over Zoom can be difficult, especially in three hour long classes. There weren’t many opportunities for live theatre, but that didn’t deter her from other opportunities. Instead of acting on stage, Rachel has spent her first year in front of a camera and has acted in numerous short films through Emerson! She’s really enjoyed the experience of acting for films and has learned a lot about behind the scenes work for film as well! On the technical side, Rachel has been studying makeup design (specifically special effects!) and hopes to pursue that in any way she can either onstage or on camera! The most important thing she’s learned while at college is to just relax and go with the flow, because trying to stick to a straight plan only creates distress and anxiety if you feel like you’re deviating from it. There is no linear path in the world of theatre, so just enjoy the experience and take advantage of any opportunity to learn!
