If you could make a 20 second phone call to yourself at any point in your life present or future, when would you call and what would you say?
If I could have a 20 second phone call with myself, I would choose to use it my senior year before college applications.  I would tell myself to trust your gut and do the work.  Be the best you can be.

Who inspires you to be better?
My family inspires me to do better.  I have grown up with hardworking and diligent family members, and I strive to continue that through my studies.

What always cheers you up?
Music always gets me out of a funk.  And it really can be any style: folk, RnB, classical, rock, etc. if it grooves, I’m happy.

What’s your favorite role in a musical you’ve played?
Jekyll and Hyde in Jekyll & Hyde.  It was one of my favorite shows back in the day, and fourteen year-old me had the album memorized.  Having the opportunity to tackle this show my senior year was an eye opening experience.

What’s your dream role?
Right now my dream role would be both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.  Both characters have unbelievable progression throughout the show and although they are both so different, I find myself being able to comprehend both mindsets as if they were my own.

What’s the most recent show you’ve binge watched?
I’m currently binge watching “The Legend of Korra” on Netflix.  I loved watching “Avatar The Last Airbender”, both as a kid and this year during the quarantine, and with the sequel series now on Netflix, I’ll definitely be spending some time watching what happens next!
