2013 - 2014 Orientation Leaders

Haley Alaji

Haley Alaji

My name is Haley Alaji; I am 18 years old, and a sophomore in the theatre department! I love to travel, see plays and eat good food for fun! A fun fact about me is I am a kick boxer. I love meeting new people, and I make the best milkshakes. Let’s be friends!

Nazlah Black

Nazlah Black

I’m a sophomore Theatre major from Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to arts, I love meeting people from around the world and learning about different cultures. My favorite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint d’Exupery. During my downtime I explore the city or go out dancing with friends. I’m so excited for this year, and I can’t wait to meet all of the new students!

Renee Boehlke

Renee Boehlke

I am a sophomore dance major originally from Atlanta, Georgia. Right now I'm focusing on modern technique and learning how to make my own dances, which sometimes involves lying on the floor and wondering what to do next. Besides dance, I love traveling, reading, singing, modern architecture, spontaneous cartwheels, watching Doctor Who, petting fluffy animals, and making guacamole from scratch.

Having quickly adapted to Seattle's dreary weather, I enjoy frequent visits to the sculpture park, thrift stores, and particular Capitol Hill coffee shops in my free time. I will happily point out the best trees for sitting and contemplating in Volunteer Park, where to find the tastiest soy chai latte, how they clean the windows at the Central Library, and hidden corners of Kerry Hall. I am excited to help new students acquaint themselves with Cornish and Seattle!

Lexi Chipman

Lexi Chipman

I am a sophomore theater major with a musical theater emphasis here at Cornish. I am a huge musical theater nerd, and my favorites are Next to Normal and Rodger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. I am also a foodie, a gourmet chef (at least I think so), a dog lover, a shopaholic, a chocoholic, an optimist, and a die-hard Disney fan. I am originally from San Diego, California, but I am in love with Seattle and all the art it contains (the whole having actual seasons thing is also a bonus).

This last year I performed in two senior projects, one called The Blue Hour written by David Mamet. The other was called Haunted Love where the audience was led through a haunted house where they witnessed numerous scary scenes and dances. It was my favorite show probably because I got to turn into a werewolf and make my friends, and some cast members, scream like girls. Needless to say, Cornish has helped me grow as a person and an artist, and I can’t wait to introduce you to the place that will help you do the same!

Charlotte Deutsch

Charlotte Deutsch

Hey there! I'm Charlotte and I'm originally from the great, white North of Minneapolis MN. I am a sophomore theatre major. In no particular order, I love foreign films, bagels, coffee, random acts of poetry, Sci-Fi, my dog, your dog, and everyone else's dog. I'd love to meet you so we can talk about art, music, that guy over there wearing a bird on his head, the consistently damp weather and whatever else strikes your fancy! Soon we'll be giving each other high-fives when we pass on the street. If I could give you one piece of life advice, it would be to start doing yoga now. See you soon!

Meghan Dolbey

Meghan Dolbey

The name is Meghan Irene Dolbey, sophomore in the musical theatre department here at Cornish. The quickest way to my heart is a Beatles album and chocolate. When I'm not busy going to school, rehearing for a show, or straining through tech, I teach zumba! I love to dance(badly) all day every day, I think its the best way to meet new people, get out of your comfort bubble, and feel better about yourself all while looking like a dork. I LOVE meeting new people, and having fun adventures in the sunshine with friends.

Seattle is where my heart is, although I was born and grew up in Portland, OR. P-Town REPRESENT! Christmas is my favorite holiday and passion, don't mess with me and Christmas. I love exploring new places in Seattle, and being outdoors, but I also don't mind the occasional Spongebob Squarepants marathon in my bedroom :) I really am looking forward to meeting all of the new students and becoming closer to the new freshman theater class. I am highly spiritual and believe everything happens for a reason, and you are the key to living a happy adventurous life! So that's me, a chocoholic, music-loving, dancing wild fool determined to make a difference in this world

Skylar J. Dove

Skylar J. Dove

What's there to say about me? I love Disney like a fat kid loves cake and love me some video games, particularly Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. I also love the gym and staying healthy. Finally I enjoy long walks on the beach under the moonlight. JK... no but really I do. Currently I'm a senior at Cornish in the theater department, double majoring in both Musical Theater and Original Works.

I'm head of public relations in the wonderful Cornish Student Leadership Council as well as having hosted the Cornish Drag Show for two years, one of those being alongside the wildly talented Jinkx Monsoon. I look forward to seeing all of the new students begin their exciting journey just as I did three years ago. May the spirit of Nelly Cornish be with you!

Erik Hall

Erik Hall

My name is Erik Hall. I am an interior design major. I am going to be the 4th Floor RA, and I’m from California. I’m very into fashion and a fun fact about me is that I can bend my pinkies all the way back.

Though her major is in Jazz she has very much enjoyed playing in various projects, some of her favorites being: a cabaret punk band in London, cabaret show in the desert of Zaragoza and Se* the musical by Adam Quillian from Cornish.

Japan born and British raised with a mother from Iran, she loves to travel and learn about different cultures from all over the world. As an international student, if you are or if someday you wish to become an international student, she would be delighted to be of assistance in any way she can. Outside of music she has a deep passion for food and has volunteered on farms. She has also been part of a fire dancing troupe and is always happy to meet others who spin or would like to spin fire.

Lindsey Lewers

Lindsey Lewers

My name is Lindsey Leweres, I am 19 years old, and I am a sophomore in the design department. In my free time, I love to watch movies, explore the town, go to shows and blog on Tumblr. Fun facts about myself are I have seen over 50 bands live, I love the outdoors, and I love to travel. My longest trip was over 3 weeks when I road tripped across America.

Fathiya Ritter

Fathiya Ritter

I am studying Musical Theatre here at Cornish and I’m absolutely in love with the program. I love hiking, swimming, singing, dancing, yoga, and working out. The last one sounds weird but it’s true I want the new students to know that by me leading by example, they can learn to approach Cornish with an open heart and an open mind.

Dallin Robinson

Dallin Robinson

Hey guys! My name is Dallin Robinson and I’m from the majestic, mountainous state of Utah. I am a sophomore in the theatre department. I started acting as a freshman in high school and I haven’t found anything I love more since. In addition to my passion for the theatrical arts, I have a particular drive for the film industry and enjoy the effort and creativity that goes into it. I am open to anything so feel free to have a conversation with me. We could talk about music, movies, political issues, how to survive a zombie apocalypse… But if you really want to get my attention, talk to me about comic books. You will be my best friend for life. Best of luck to all of you incoming freshmen! Although it may be overwhelming at first, you’ll discover that this year will be one of the best and you’ll almost instantly find comfort in the friends you make and the growth of your art. Trust me, I’ve been through freshmen year twice.

Julia Sloan

Julia Sloan

Hi there! I’m a rising sophomore dance major, and I’m super excited to start the new year with you all. I’m originally from North Carolina, and while I miss the sunshine, Seattle’s my kind of city. I love good coffee, and am always on the lookout for the perfect place to settle down with a book. I love music and going to concerts, but I also can be found running or biking. I’m a long time vegetarian newly turned vegan—health food nuts come my way! Can’t wait to meet all of you!

Reina Struk

Reina Struk

Hello, hello! My name is Reina, and I am going to be a junior in the Theater department this coming fall. I couldn’t be more excited! I am happy to be a returning Orientation Leader this year because I love meeting aspiring artists like myself and sharing my knowledge about Cornish to new students. In my spare time, I am not ashamed to say that my hobbies fall on the more nerdy side of the spectrum. I love to play Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering, and maybe a game or two of Humans VS Zombies. Also, things like Harry Potter (I am a proud Slytherin), Buffy, Dollhouse, Firefly, Doctor Who, Dr. Horrible, The Guild, Middle Earth, A Very Potter Musical (and all Starkid productions), Sherlock, any and all Marvel Superheroes (and maybe some DC), and Avatar the Last Airbender/Korra set my geeky heart a glow. I may be as peppy as a Disney princess, but don’t let that fool you. Hand me a Nerf Gun and you better watch out! But, my favorite thing to do above all else is laugh. There is nothing better, in my mind, than good company and a good joke.

Annsofie Wikgard

Annsofie Wikgard

Hello! I am a senior in the Performance Production department. A passion for visual art with a purpose led me to costume and scenic design for the theatre, where art and design are created to be used. I love all types of performances, but there's something magical about live theatre. My favorite things include: animals, shopping, being outside, and ice cream. This is my first time being an orientation leader, but I'm very excited to show off one of my favorite cities to new Seattle-ites!
