Young Nae Choi, a second year MFA candidate in the theater for youth program at the School of Film, Dance and Theatre in ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, has been awarded the Emerging Leader in TYA Fellowship from Theatre for Young Audiences/USA.

She will complete an individual research project by traveling to leading TYA theatres, receive mentorship and leadership development from TYA/USA staff and the board throughout the year, and participate in regular cohort meetings to discuss issues in the TYA field.

Young Nae Choi is a theater-maker, artist-researcher, performer and educator from Seoul, South Korea, and she earned a BA in theater from New York University Abu Dhabi.
