How you advanced: With a record number of Audience votes
Dream role if you win: Bonnie Parker in Bonnie and Clyde or JD from Heathers. I'm still deciding.
Song you sang to advance: Safer from First Date
Why you chose it? This song speaks to me and probably most people around my age. Being unsure of yourself and everything in life, and it causing such an internal crisis.

Training: BFA in Theatre Performance from Kean. Classes and workshops with Thom Warren, Laura Osnes, Stephen Davis.
Favorite critique from the judges: Khy giving me two free lessons and Richard Kline saying he'll give me no lessons, cause I don't need them!
What will you do with the grand prize?: I'd use the money to try and get my feet on the ground, pay some bills and hopefully stop living paycheck to paycheck
Shout out statement: Thank you to all of my friends, family, and people who just enjoy watching me for helping me get this far, I LOVE YOU ALL! #carrieaf
