She graduated from the Advanced Flag course, Bibliology courses I and II, and had the opportunity to take dance and flag classes at the studio. She was in two dance productions at the Arts Bank Theatre and several Gathering Connection Fellowship events.

Andra is on the Executive Board and has been a member of the WAE planning committee for the last three years.
