Talk with more people you do not know, because you only have 4 years here and in retrospect, that is not a long time.
Who has been your biggest influence at the school and why? (teacher, administrator, staff member)
Definitely Mrs. Whipkey. While she was not necessarily a mentor or anything, she was always willing to talk to you and offer her input. She let me see what I could do with my life with an outside perspective, and she helped clear up what I wanted to do in the future. Additionally, she showed how not everything revolved around the United States; there is a world outside this country contrary to popular belief.

Jazz Band, because it showed me what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
What is something interesting about you that most people wouldn’t know about you?
I write music; a lot of music. I have written piano pieces, band pieces, jazz pieces; I write short stories and other creative media. I like to think of myself as a creator.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Still in college, working for a masters degree or still developing my skills as a performing artist.
