Q: Would you ever want to live in another country? 

A: I would love to live in another country. My favorite part about living overseas for five years was being able to travel to new places and expose myself to different cultures. I am really hoping that at some point during college I go back overseas, whether it be in an abroad program or fully going to a college over there; it is something I really want to do again.

Q: What was it like living in Italy compared to the United States? 

A: It was very different. It was a big change, but I loved being able to expose myself to new things and travel to new places. I am incredibly grateful that I got an opportunity like that at such a young age.

Q: What are you involved in at Ledyard? 

A: I am a part of NAHS, NHS, and I am class vice president. I am also a part of More Than Words which has been a really great group to be involved in. Being a part of NAHS and NHS has been a big accomplishment of mine because it has been something I have been working towards since my freshman year. I also joined More Than Words at the height of COVID, and it has been an eye-opening experience, and I have learned a lot from the other members.

Q: What do you do outside of school? 

A: I love to paint, and if I have any free time I tend to spend it doing that or watching new movies. I have also recently gotten back into reading. I fell out of reading for a while, so it has been nice to get back into it.

Q: Do you have any idea what you want to do after high school? 

A: I am not certain what I want to do yet, but I am interested in accounting. I really enjoy the accounting program here, so I am considering going to college to major in accounting. Although, the idea of editing movies has always been an interest of mine, I might consider taking a route that can help me achieve that.
