The U.S. Consulate General unveiled a new video spotlighting Bermudian student Myah Bridgewater, who pursued her passion for arts and education at the University of Michigan.

A spokesperson said, “As students return to the classroom following spring break, the U.S. Consulate General launched a new spotlight video today on Facebook and Instagram, [@USConsulateHamilton] showcasing a Bermudian student dedicated to pursuing her passion for the arts and education at the University of Michigan in the United States.

“In the video, Myah Bridgewater shares her reasons for choosing to study at the University of Michigan and advises students seeking higher education opportunities to do their own research and to follow their passion.”

“You’re going to hear a lot of voices telling you to do this, and do that, but do your own research and look into what you love,” she says. “I chose to study at Michigan specifically because they have super rigorous academics…with this amazing conservatory style acting program which was really attractive to me because I love both academics and arts.”

The spokesperson said, “Myah is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in acting with a minor in performing arts management and education for empowerment, designed for students interested in examining the critical role of education and developing equitable and just educational opportunities.

“Myah’s passion for the arts began at a young age. She spent several summers honing her craft as an actor at the Stagedoor Manor performing arts camp in upstate New York, attended Camp Broadway in New York City, and explored musical theater opportunities at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Massachusetts. In 2022, she launched a successful summer theatre camp for Bermuda’s youth called ActinUp! in partnership with Sanzia Pearman, an undergraduate at Spelman College studying musical theatre and education. The camp took place at Warwick Academy where Myah studied and performed as a drama student.

“Founded in 1817, the University of Michigan is a public research university in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is the oldest institution of higher education in the state.”

Myah highlights her positive on-campus experience in the video and shares, “Ann Arbor is named as one of the best campus towns. The whole town is our campus, anywhere you go, [the University of] Michigan is everywhere. The campus is easy to navigate, and everyone is always willing to help.”

U.S. Consul General Karen Grissette affirmed, “Myah’s U.S. experience has equipped her with the knowledge and tools to pursue her passion and seek opportunities to give back to her community. Her cultural-exchange opportunities, and educational accomplishments are yet another example of the benefits of studying in the United States.”

The spokesperson said, “After graduating from the University of Michigan, Myah intends to return to Bermuda to showcase her diverse talents, and advance education programs for young people.
