Amaria Stern

Dallas, TX

BFA Class of 2020

Where did you train?

Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.

What inspires you?

I’m intrigued by the different ways people form connections and grow in relationships with others, with themselves, or with a higher power. I’m also inspired by people who are raw and not afraid to be honest, little kids, gospel music, and last but not least, good food.

Describe yourself in three words.

Soulful. Steadfast. Authentic.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

One of my most legitimate life goals is to own as many colors of Converse sneakers as possible.

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

Being a part of USC Kaufman is such a blessing because I have the opportunity to be in an environment with artists who want nothing more than to grow, explore and impact the world as much I do; and to do so with educators who are dedicated to helping each of us become the artists we are meant to be.
