I tend to get shy when talking to strangers, and NACA really forced me out of my shell to talk to agents and performers. I had my first one-on-one experience with a magician, and I came to the realization that magicians still scare me. I did meet a rapper, LV, who I completely destroyed in an intense match of rock-paper-scissors. He was really friendly and inviting, and we got a few photos too. After spending 4 straight days with e-board members and other mappies, I would say I got to know everyone extremely well. At the conference, I felt proud representing Stevenson University because SU really is home!
