What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman’s inaugural class?

To be a part of USC Kaufman’s inaugural class means everything to me. Especially because it’s the very first class, so I will be innovating and creating a new program. I am also so excited to be able to experiment with the other art forms that USC offers!
