Tell us how you got started in the arts. How old were you, and what piqued your interest?

My third-grade music teacher cast me as the lead role in the annual play. Ever since then, I have loved music and theater.

Why do you love your art?

I love art because it is a way to express myself while having fun. Also, the adrenaline rush of an opening-night performance is like no other feeling.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments within your art field?

The proudest moment of my art experience was being cast as the lead role of Danny Zuko in “Grease.”

How have you balanced school with your art?

At first, balancing school and music/theater was a great challenge. However, I have learned to make use of any spare time I have. This includes doing homework during scenes which I am not in or breaks. This will definitely help my time management in college.

What are some of your future goals related to your art?

I plan to join an a cappella group in college and possibly audition for the musicals there.

Do you have any plans to continue studying your art in college, either as a hobby or as a major? How did you come to this decision?

I plan on joining an a cappella group in college. This will be as a hobby but taken very seriously. UConn has 13 a cappella groups, which are all recognized as some of the best in the country.
