"I am so grateful for the James Conklin Memorial Scholarship, the iO Summer Intensive, and all the wonderful and passionate comedians I met during my summer in Chicago. I fell in love with the city and my love for comedy was validated. Shelby, Rachel, and the scholarship board were all invested in my success and continue to check up on me. I found a home in the Chicago comedy community and met comedians from all around the world. So much love and thanks for the JCMS team."
