Bryan Hymel '01

International opera star Bryan Hymel '01 has been singing professionally since 1998, when he made his debut as the Philistine messenger in “Samson et Delila” with the New Orleans Opera. Now a highly sought-after recitalist and concert performer, Hymel has appeared in many of the world’s most accomplished opera houses and festivals, including the Metropolitan Opera where in 2012 he stepped in as a last-minute replacement in its production of “Les Troyens.” He won the Beverly Sills Award in 2012. In 2013, he was the recipient of the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his trio of performances in “Les Troyens,” “Robert le diable” and “Rusalka” at London’s Royal Opera House.

Kelly Williams Brown ’06

Author Kelly Williams Brown ’06 is currently working on her second book. Her first, “Adulting: How to Become A Grownup in 468 Easy(ish) Steps,” was a New York Times bestseller. She worked as a daily news reporter for seven years before transitioning to copywriting and freelancing. Her work has appeared on or in The New York Times, the Today Show, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Esquire, The Boston Globe and many more, and has been translated into seven languages. Her TEDx Talk, “I’m a Millennial, and I am a Monster” was a editor’s pick of the week, and she has spoken at colleges across the country, commencements and, strangely enough, NASA.

I chose Loyola because I wanted to study journalism in the most vibrant, alive city in the country, but what I experienced blew me away. I owe everything to the incredible professors who taught me not only how to write, but more importantly how to be a decent and thoughtful human being who lives a life for others. Loyola is not only my alma mater, it's my heart.
