As of now I am going to school with an undecided major with the intent of giving myself more options to decide, I will also be attending this university to play on their women’s lacrosse team.
I do have an interest in working with marine animals or the coral reef which is something that I would love to be able to pursue!
A big accomplishment personally I would like to make is to buy a car, I have been saving up for the past year by working two jobs. The professional accomplishment I would like to make is to figure out my major and pursue a career that lets me travel and live without worry.
The accomplishment that I made at Lisle High School that I am most proud of is having a lead role in this springs musical The Sister Act, I have never had a lead before and it was an absolutely amazing experience to have lines and even my own solos in songs as Sister Mary Lazuras.
The teacher that was most influential was my junior year English teacher, Mr. Aske. He wasn’t supposed to even be our teacher but since the teacher who was mentoring him left, we got the best English class ever. Mr. Aske, though a bit inexperienced had been the reason why I think I’m still here today, through bullying and harassment of my peers Mr. Aske did his part as an educator to control the situation while it was going on in the classroom. He also made sure to check up on me during and outside of class by emails or even just commenting on the class work that I turned in. Unfortunately he moved to Romeoville for my senior year so I was never able to truly thank him for being an amazing teacher and person.
I want to thank the Lisle Alumni for giving me the chance to share my story of how being a part of the arts and the drama department has been for me. Additionally, I want them to know how much this scholarship is going to help me pay off my college tuition, it really was a generous amount given for this scholarship and I’m very happy to have won it.
