Annie moved from Argentina to the DMV area for #gradlife and signed up for a WIT class in the pursuit of a new hobby. Since then, her mom fears she will drop out of grad school for #improvlife.

She started volunteering as an excuse to see more shows and make friends. But helping out WIT is rewarding in and of itself every time. Her favorite times volunteering have been the POTUS Among Us 2016 run and Palooza 2016, where she discovered the fun of letting your creativity go wild.

It’s the thrill of exploring emotions, trusting, and connecting with fellow players and audiences, and the blinding lights of the stage that make improv such a unique experience for her. Through taking classes, volunteering, and performing with indie teams like Menstrual Pains, Sabado Picante, and Kaleidoscope, Annie has found in improv a refuge from the stress of everyday life, and a group of friends that always have her back.

Annie moved from Argentina to the DMV area for #gradlife and decided to start doing improv in the pursuit of a new hobby. Now Uber suggests Source and CentroNia as her destinations more often than her own place.

Annie signed up for an Improv for Scientists workshop in January 2016. Since then, she has completed WIT’s curriculum, in addition to sketch classes, one-time workshops and a terrifying-yet-memorable musical improv class. She has been performing with indie teams Sabado Picante, Kaleidoscope, Menstrual Pains, and Cake. She is also part of WIT’s Special Projects Vagina!: An Improvised Monologue Show, and In Lieu of Flowers.

If she is not doing improv, Annie is probably frantically writing, in her never-ending quest to graduate from her PhD program in Government and Politics. She has found in improv a refuge from the stress of everyday life, and a group of beloved friends who always have her back.
