2201. “I love breaking down scripts, I can read plays all day.” As a kid, Liz Wiest never really did well with sports, so instead she gravitated towards the creative side of life. Originally from Harrisburg, PA, she wanted to experience the vibrant culture of life in the city so she decided to attend @templeuniv where she changed her major about 5 different times. Though she knew she wanted to pursue something in the arts, Liz hesitated due to fear, but eventually realized, “If I waited until the day it became not scary, that day was never going to come.” As a result, she settled on obtaining a degree in English with minors in Economics & Theater, and after graduation chose to pursue her master’s in Screenwriting & Playwriting at @pointparku. Using a play she’d written over 2 years and then cast and directed during her time at Temple, Liz applied and became accepted to Point Park and now plans to graduate in 2020. In the future once she’s done with school, she hopes to become a comedy writer, creating shows like her favorite, @bojackhorseman, and ultimately wishes to live out a career similar to Tina Fey’s. In the meantime, though, she’s working towards her new degree, acting at events like @terroratesp, and gaining professional experience by interning at @glassentertainmentgroup! So nice to meet you, @lizkhawiesta! #10kfriends #philly #rittenhouse #scripts #temple #theater #english #writer #pointpark #comedy #bojackhorseman #tinafey #creative #meetingpeople
