“UNT’s voice faculty is my second family. My private voice teacher is like my parent and the other faculty members are like supportive aunts and uncles who are eager to see me succeed. By coaching me on diction, encouraging me and imparting wisdom, the entire voice faculty has had a positive impact on me.”
