Band, WCTV, school plays, softball, volleyball, Spanish club, PBIS student leader, student council, and I'm class officer.

Which is your favorite and why?

Band is definitely my favorite. Music has become a passion of mine and getting to express myself in a class full of other band geeks everyday is perfect. The best part is we get to spend early mornings together, whether it be marching band or jazz band, and evenings with football games and pep bands. So I basically live band all the time!

What activities do you do outside of school?

Plays at Webster City Community Theatre, private flute lessons and I perform on the flute for nursing homes and assisted livings. I also babysit!

You are involved in so many things, how do you find to do all of that?

To find the time to do any of these things, I have to prioritize. If it's volleyball season and I have a game, I'd have to miss a play rehearsal. And I try not to schedule two things at the same time, although it happens a lot.

What's your favorite class and why?

My favorite class, besides band, is one I just started taking this semester. It's Peer PE. It's a smaller class full of diversity, and so much fun! It focuses on being a good leader with our peers and adds in the fun of scooters and the best kids you could get a chance to work with. I even found a new best friend (in the few days we've had the class), Samantha Camp and boy, do we love our ponytails!

What comes after graduation?

After graduation, I plan on going to either ISU or UNI to major in instrumental music education.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I'll ideally be teaching at a high school and building up a respectable band, and maybe even an orchestra, to become better than they've ever been. I'd love to have my own band room!

What advice would you give to underclassmen about being involved in clubs and activities?

Experiment with it! Do things you love, and things you have never tried. You can find new activities that excite you and might even find your passion along the way!
