Miguel Aviles-Elrod is graduating with a BFA and a minor in community action and social change. During his time at Michigan, Miguel co-founded We The PROUD Polycultural Productions that creates opportunities for marginalized theatre-makers to reimagine themselves out of oppression. Through our pillars of representation, validation, normalization, and reclamation, we aim to help all minority artists find their creative voice so they can empower themselves using the performing arts as a medium. Miguel was last seen on campus performing as Elliot in the SMTD University Production of Water By The Spoonful. Miguel would like to thank his family and his BFAmily for constantly supporting him through all of his endeavors at the University of Michigan.
