"Whether she was helping me find monologues, working on scene study, or reminding me to stay calm and kick some butt when I needed it, Susan was always rooting for me."

Saisha Talwar is a rising sophomore at the University of Chicago. She began working with Susan before high school, and even after heading to the East Coast for boarding school, couldn't stay away! Susan has helped Saisha with a range of auditions for high school theatre, and most recently worked with her to gain artist representation at Big Mouth Talent Agency!

"Susan is more than a coach: she has been my biggest cheerleader. I started working with her when I was just thirteen years old, and even after heading out East to boarding school, when I called her a few months ago, almost 20, and told her I wanted to try and pursue acting again professionally, she was there with me every step of the way. Whether she was helping me find monologues, working on scene study, or reminding me to stay calm and kick some butt when I needed it, Susan was always rooting for me. Inside the “classroom,” she’s taught me how to make my acting more real and truthful, and how to bring myself to a range of roles. I could not be more thankful for all she has done! You're the best, Sooze!!"
