N.E.W. Lutheran High School

Area of Interest: Drama

What has your involvement with drama looked like?

Growing up, my school did musicals, which I wasn’t a fan of. Once I got to high school, I heard they were doing a play and decided to try it. It was such an amazing experience that I fell in love with drama.

What six words would you say describe you best?

Intelligent, confident, friendly, compassionate, brave and caring.

Do you have any hidden talents?

They aren’t very hidden, but I am naturally athletic and really good with kids.

What advice would you have to other students thinking of getting started in drama?

Just dive in and overcome your inhibitions and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks.

What is your favorite thing you’ve ever done with your area of interest?

I performed Love From a Stranger by Agatha Christie with one of my favorite people to act with.

What are your plans for after college?

I want to go on to become a Lutheran elementary school teacher.

Early bird or night owl?

I like to stay up late and can handle being up early so both.

What is your first childhood memory?

Going to our neighbor’s house as kids with my older brother and playing with them. They were middle or high schoolers and I was 2 or 3, and they had bunnies in their garage as pets.

Apple or Android?


Starbucks, Dunkin or Scooter’s?


Have you broken any bones?

No, not even a sprain.

What is your favorite class and why?

English or AP chemistry. My mind understands chemistry and I like my teacher and really like my class. English isn’t my favorite subject, but I really enjoy the class time and really like my teacher.

Which statement do you agree with — the movie was better than the book or the book is always better than the movie?

It depends, but usually the book is better.

A teacher.
