I love everything about (this) program at Niagara College. The program is designed in a way so we get to work with different departments, like broadcasting, and it really feels like I am working on a real set. The program puts a lot of focus on fine tuning your acting skills but also on being comfortable being yourself, which made it a really safe place to learn.
