Although not pronounced as the abbreviated name for a microphone, this girl was born to be on the stage. With a strong background in musical theatre, it’s no surprise that within her first couple of weeks at college she was
initiated into both Off the Beat and Bloomers, UPenn’s all-female comedy group. We’ve never met anyone with more chill than Mic, yet somehow her range never got the memo. Hear her belt Mezzo to Tenor notes and stun
 you with all her talent: trust us, she’s no joke. Mic might have moved around a lot in the past, but get ready for four more years of rocking because this powerhouse newb is here to stay.

I’m probably rehearsing with Bloomers or working as a teacher’s assistant at a local elementary school or sitting in a coffee shop trying to study but probably getting distracted.
Fun Fact: I refuse to use umbrellas because they are problematic and not more effective than a good raincoat, but then I get into these situations when I’m walking with a friend who’s carrying an umbrella and she offers to share it with me. Do I stick to my beliefs, knowing that half of both of our bodies will be rained on if we do share or do I just accept the nice gesture, you know?
My favorite genres are R&B, jazz, roots-ish rock, and pop. My beloved within those: The Weeknd, SZA, grandson, The Skins, Peggy Lee and Anita O’Day.
