This year, after having minor roles in the two previous school musical productions, I had the honor of being “the prince” in our production of R&H’s Cinderella. Although a major time commitment, as well as a much more difficult role to play, I thoroughly enjoyed taking full advantage of my last year of participation in Oakwood’s fine arts.
When I’m not fully booked with Oakwood-related events and obligations, I enjoy spending time playing the piano, especially with my friends. I have played at a few open mic nights downtown at The Scullery, and I hope to continue playing music throughout college and beyond.
Although I do not know what I want to pursue as a career, I am currently interested in the fields of neuroscience and psychology. I hope that my decision to attend Duke University in the fall will allow me to explore my academic interests and find my true passion.
