Senior Yassi Noubahar has participated in the theatre arts department on campus for her entire high school career. She is currently in her second year in Theatre Arts Workshop (TAW) and the president of the Thespian Society.
Noubahar plans to pursue a career in musical theatre in college.
“Musical theatre is what makes me happiest and what makes me feel like myself. I would be insane not to pursue something that feels so right,” Noubahar said. “Right now, my first choice college is the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). The department there is excellent.”
Noubahar realized her passion for the musical theatre when she was ten years old.
“When I was 10 I went to New York City and saw ‘Mary Poppins’ at the New Amsterdam Theatre and fell in love. From that day forward I could not imagine doing anything but musical theatre,” Noubahar said.
