What accomplishments at SHS make you the most proud? I am extremely proud of how far the theatre department has come in my time at Salisbury. We went from not being recognized by the Freddy Awards in my freshman year to winning two of these awards in May 2016.

What was your most memorable learning experience at SHS? I am grateful for having the opportunity to have my own laptop and use this as a learning tool in the classroom. This has made me a more technologically-adept student and better fitted to education in the 21st century.

What are you doing after graduation? I will be attending New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to study vocal performance with a concentration in classical voice.

What goals do you have for your future? My goal is to enter a performance career in the music field, whether that be in musical theatre or opera, and touching people’s emotions through my musical abilities.

How has STSD prepared you for that future? My wonderful teachers have prepared me in the classroom for the rigorous education I will receive at a university like NYU and have encouraged me to continue performing by telling me how my voice affects them.

What advice would you offer future seniors? My advice to future seniors is simply a quote from A. A. Milne: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” You should not be afraid of any opportunity that comes your way because you have the abilities to handle anything life may throw at you.
