What are your hobbies?
Flute, music, art and yoga.
What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
I would probably do something to make people smile, like leave little Post-it notes on the wall and no one would know they were from me.
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be?
J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books. I’ve read all of them
Who is someone who inspired you?
My middle school music teacher, Paul Magersuppe. He told me that you don’t play music to please a judge, but for yourself.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
When I was 7, I was allowed to have my first pet. We went to nine pet stores before I found my rabbit, Twinkles. He’s still with me, although he won’t be able to go to college with me.
What do you do when you want to get away from it all?
I play my flute.
What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?
There are two. Becoming valedictorian because it is the result of four years of hard work, and winning a superior with distinction (you play by memory) award in the state musical competition my junior year.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’m allergic to sprinkles – the kind you put on ice cream.
