Grade: 11th Sports/School Activities: Dance Company and Theatre Hobbies: I love art, especially performing arts! I spend most of my time dancing and I love listening to, singing, and writing music when I can. I'm very interested in acting and I'm trying to learn how to draw, but both of those are still in process. Oh, and I can't forget taking naps. Truly, that is my best skill. What do you want to be when you grow up and why? I'd like to work in the field of Neuropsychology or Sociology because I love science and I love helping people as much as possible. I think people are amazing, and I'd love to better understand what makes us individuals. I hope to improve how people interact with each other and give others hope in their lives. I would also like to continue my love of dance through choreographing. Favorite food: Pancakes. I practically live at IHOP. Favorite song/band: Oh Wonder & Ben Howard are two of my favorite artists. What is something you are passionate about and why? I'm very passionate about service. It's simple and easy, but service changes lives. I feel it gives me purpose and strengthens my relationships with the people around me. Others have served me, so I think it's important for me to give back the best that I can, even if my contribution is small. What is your favorite thing about Alta and why? The people, hands down. They have taught me how to love and accept myself. They make me laugh, cry, and everything in between. I can't thank them enough. What is your favorite subject in school? History because I can take naps. (Sorry Nesbit) What is something unique about you that you find central to your personality? I'm very open about how weird I am.
