I’m involved in CSF, Interact, Musical Theater, Choir, Colorguard, and even Youtube…when I’m not eating food. We only have one home, so we should safeguard it.

I’m excited to venture outdoors and do our best to preserve the world and keep it healthy. Fun Fact: I love traveling and going to concerts with my sister. I also enjoy playing my ukulele and jamming out.
