Oakmont High School

What accomplishment are you most proud of and why?

My proudest accomplishment is teaching myself piano, accompanying choirs and performing.
What are your school interests, involvements and hobbies?
I’m president of the choir and I also do dance and musical theater.

What’s one thing that not many people know about you?

Instead of going out on Fridays, I stay home and play piano or work on lines for the musical in which I’m a cast member—I’m a bit of a music nerd!

What are your plans after graduation?

I will attend California State University, Sacramento, to pursue a bachelor’s degree in music education; after, I’d like to become a music teacher, band director or choir director at the high school level.

Who is your role model?

My mom—she’s an absolutely amazing woman who has taught me humility, respect, and has encouraged me through all of my downfalls. I love you mom!

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I would travel to Italy or Guatemala so I could see my where my roots are.
