Which friend or friends will you miss most from Bangor and why?

I will miss my friends Joshua Lopez, Joshua Martinez, Sarina Donatelli. These people I will miss the most because they always knew exactly how to cheer me up when I was down, they knew when to be honest with me in certain situations throughout high school. And they were always just great friends to have.

Which teacher influenced you most or who will you remember most from Bangor and why?

I would say the teacher who has influence me the most has to be Mr. Di Minico. I believe he has influenced me the most because he has taught me to never give up at whatever I’m passionate about and giving my 100% all the time is the best I can do and that no one is perfect.

What is your best high school memory and why?

My best high school memory would be the day that 23 chorus members, including myself, were selected to be in the 2020 district 10 chorus. This is my best memory because, it was my first time making districts and it showed me that the last four years of hard work paid off.

Which band could play the soundtrack to your high school career and why?

The band that could play my high school playlist would be In Paradise. Their music is always so energetic, positive and looking towards the future.

If there were a movie made about your high school days, which actor would play your part and why?

I believe the actor who would play me is Will Ferrell. He is such a great actor and show emotion and sympathy.

When you arrive at school in the morning, where is the first place you want to go and why?

I would go down stairs to the choir room because that room is my quiet space and I can just relax and get ready for the day down there.

Where do you predict you’ll end up ten years from now and why?

I predict that I will be working in a hospital working as a nurse in the pediatric wing of whatever hospital I’m working at. I believe this because my major in college is nursing and I want to be a nurse for the rest of my life.

Which event, events will you miss the most and why? 

I will miss participating in the lip sync contest, Disney and Broadway night and performing at Carnegie Hall.

What is your favorite quote to live by and why?

My favorite quote to live by is, “hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard.” This is my favorite quote because it proves that just because someone has talent in something but doesn’t work hard they won’t get as far as someone who will work hard.

What/who inspired you to choose your career?

Mr. Hobbs and Mr. Egner inspired me to go into the medical field and pursue making public health better and safer.

What do you miss most about choir?

I miss making great music while having fun doing it.

What is your favorite musical and why?

My favorite musical is “A Chorus Line” because it is very upbeat.
