Adrina Johnston is excited to be apart of the new Gainesville expansion of Actors Reaching Out. She is a full-time student at the University of Florida, studying Microbiology and Cell Sciences. Adrina has had the chance to perform on many occasions, starting with many school productions starting at age six. She has varied in the role she plays, from being part of the on-stage production of several musicals like Thoroughly Modern Millie to being part of the technical crew for shows like Legally Blonde. Actors Reaching Out has given her an opportunity to work outside of the sciences in something that was part of her childhood, and give back to the to those around her. Adrina also works as a Desk Assistant for the University of Florida Division of Housing, giving her ample opportunities to interact with students from varying backgrounds. She is looking forward to promoting literacy through the performing arts, and having the chance to give back to the community.
