WORDS OF ADVICE FOR UNDERCLASSMEN: If you think you're even a little bit good at anything, don't be afraid to show it. It could change your life. FAVORITE QUOTE: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to always tell the difference.” - Kurt Vonnegut COLLEGE/WORK PLANS: Enrolled in ACCC with the NJ Stars program, then planning on studying animation at a state college. I eventually hope to practice animation as a profession. WORDS OF THANKS/APPRECIATION: Thanks to everyone I've come to meet through my involvement in the school music program. You are all great people and you've made my entire high school experience so much better just by being friendly human beings. I know I'll never forget any of you, because you're all the sweetest and funniest people I've ever met. God bless. Also a special thanks to Mr. Arena, for opening up a lot of opportunities for me. The school music program allowed me to explore the guitar in a great array of performances. Thank you for giving me the privilege to take part in such performances and for allowing me to meet new people in doing so.
