    "I have always been passionate about the arts, and how art can serve as a social change agent. Growing up, I was a dancer, participated in school band and theatre, and had a deep interest in photography. Currently, I am working as a project manager for ProLiteracy Worldwide, but in my spare time I contribute my skills and passion to area arts organizations. I am hoping this degree, combined with my nonprofit experience, will lead me down the path of eventually working in a museum, performing arts center, or other arts nonprofit, so that I am able to combine my professional experience with my passion."

    Ceylan Yildiz

    Undergraduate Degree: B.S. in Finance, Le Moyne College

    "I chose to pursue my Master's in arts administration to combine my knowledge in the field of finance with my passion for music. I always knew I wanted to have a career in the arts industry, but was unsure of how to make the leap from the for-profit to non-profit sector. Once completing my degree at Le Moyne College, I hope to serve as a catalyst for change in how non-profit organizations are viewed in today's society through development and engagement."
