As we enter our last three weeks in Scotland, I think about how I have learned much about the importance of teamwork and strong work ethic. It has been quite the journey thus far, and I am so proud of the work that everyone has put in.

It is a difficult thing to bring a group of Americans to Scotland to perform an original piece in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Our goal could not be achieved if it was not for every person and their work put in to making this production happen. Everyone has a job and has to do it to the best of their ability. Whether it is performing or behind the scenes, every person has to live up to the expectations of the rest of the company. The production would not be possible without sound, lighting, set, stage management, props, costumes, actors, etc. Not one piece of the puzzle can be missing. Everyone depends on one another in this process and I am proud to say that I have been a part of such a hard working group of artists.

It is extremely exciting to think that all this work paying off, as we are finally telling our story to audiences.

This is an important story and one that needs to be heard.

Sexual assault is real and is happening in our world today. It is present in the news.

I believe that our production has the possibility of giving victims a voice. It is my hope that our team work, our hard work, this story, will hopefully do just that.
