Ehh Past Review

By (Theatre Arts, American University) - abroad from 09/05/2011 to 12/09/2011 with

Sarah Lawrence College: London - London Theatre Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Studying abroad itself was a worthwhile experience. However, a lot of damage was done to my psyche and made me quit the acting profession, a godsend if you really ask me.

Comments: I loathed the director I was given at the program, and found having her as a director was a complete waste of my parents hard-earned money to send me abroad. She was unprofessional, emotionally abusive and completely unhelpful.
