Meet Andrew Burrill
Andrew is a 4th year Media Studies and Drama double major at the University of Virginia that we have the pleasure to meet at the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Academy last year.

As a performer, he has worked on television shows such as Modern Family and Veep, performed at the 2012 MTV Music Video Awards, and stared as Tommy Pickles in a Los Angeles production of Rugrats The Musical. Andrew recently spoke at the TED Conference on the power of the arts and has been featured for his positive work towards generational social change on media outlets such as CNN, NBC, and the Washington Post.
