Natalie Eslami '19: Senior profile

From an early age, Eslami’s mother could only keep her still by putting her in front of a sheet of butcher paper with paints and crayons. Her love for art followed her through middle school and high school and she plans on pursuing Technical Theater/ Theater Design and Technology in college.

“Imagination is the most valuable, powerful trait that I possess,” said Eslami. “Some artists use canvas or paper, but I transform spaces. Starting with nothing more than an idea or story, I imagine magical playgrounds for performers and create a visual ambiance that helps elicit a transformational experience for the actors and audiences.”

At Lausanne, Eslami uses her artistic talents as a set designer and stage manager for the Upper School Theater, is involved in Thespian Leadership and is vice president of International Thespian Society Troupe #1547, while also being involved in HOSA, National Honor Society and Cum Laude Society.

“I think my favorite thing about being a Lausanne student is my ability to be a big fish in a small pond,” said Eslami. “Because Lausanne has a small student body, I am able to form meaningful relationships with my teachers who, in turn, are able to understand my goals and aspirations, and provide me with jumpstarting opportunities.”

Eslami is currently looking into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, University of Southern California of Dramatic Arts and Emerson College for potential schools, and Lausanne is honored to have been able to provide her with opportunities for artistic growth as she embarks on her future.
