Whether they are playing video games with their younger brother or taking their little sister trick or treating, they are there for their siblings.

To them, music is everything. They have always loved it. They know how to play the flute and alto saxophone, and they taught themselves how to play the piano. They know how to read music, and they are saving up for a guitar so they can learn how to play. They dream of someday going into the music industry. 

“I asked my mom, ‘If I were to start a music career, would you support me?’” they said. “She said, ‘Why not?” so, I might do that.”

They love art and drawing. They are considering becoming involved with the choir and theater program at KHS. They are talented, but they are equally humble. 

Right now, their biggest stressor is getting to school. After a rough first month this school year, they transitioned into attending school for half days and taking classes online. 

“I am trying to get a job,” they said. “I want to get a car, or fix up a car. I don’t want to take the bus anymore.” 

They like to hang out with their friends and play with their two dogs, a puppy and a mutt. They are looking forward to the track season this spring. 

They are a loving and involved sibling. Whether they are playing video games with their younger brother or taking their little sister trick or treating, they are there for their siblings and ready to be the best role model they can be. And it’s showing, their little sister is learning how to play the viola, following in their musical footsteps.
