Brief Biographical Sketch:

Maggie Green currently serves as the leader of the Rebel Alliance, and though she stole the plans for the Galactic Empire’s Death Star, her ship has been captured by Imperial forces under the command of the evil Darth Vader. With the help of humans Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, a wookie named Chewbacca, and the Force, she was rescued moments before execution. After a long battle between the Rebels and the Empire, Vader’s ship was sent spinning off into space and the Death Star was destroyed. Oh wait, that was the plot of the first (fourth?) Star Wars movie. Maggie Green, JE'14, is so excited to be teaching at SPLASH this year. Maggie is a junior studying Film Studies, though she's changed her major five times during her Undergraduate career. Maggie serves as Publicity Co-Coordinator for the Alliance for Dance at Yale (ADAY), and can often be seen jumping around various dance studios on campus in preparation for the next Danceworks performance. Maggie's excitement for SPLASH this year can only be compare to her crippling fears of aliens, robots, and movie theaters.
