Katie Joachim ’20 – IES Abroad London, United Kingdom

Hello! Katie Joachim is a senior at Hope College, where she is studying Theatre and Creative Writing. This fall she is studying theatre in London, England with IES Abroad.

Most recently at Hope, she was seen as the Baker’s Wife in Into the Woods (Fall 2018) and she was the Stage Manager for Cry it Out (Spring 2019). She was an Acting Intern and Head Teacher for the Hope Summer Repertory Theatre this past summer.

In the English realm, Katie assisted in selecting the material for Opus’s Fall 2017 publication. Her favorite pieces of literature include To Kill a Mockingbird, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Romeo and Juliet. When you can’t find her in rehearsal, she is probably watching Grey’s Anatomy while nibbling on a freshly-baked piece of cake
