How many years have you been a Bangor Slater?
I have been a Bangor Slater for 14 years 

Where do you plan to attend college and what will you be studying? What do you want to do as a future career?

List the sports, activities, clubs, etc. you did while you were at Bangor High School.
While at Bangor high school I was a four-year varsity cheerleader for football, girls and boys basketball, and wrestling. I was in Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, and Slater Chorale, I have been involved in all the musicals, and I was a part of junior and senior Class Cabinet as well as Student Government. 

What three positive words would your friends use to describe you?
Three positive words my friends use to describe me would be, thoughtful, musical, and charismatic. 

Who will you remember most in Bangor and why?
Someone I will remember most in Bangor would have to be Mr. Di Minico because he has taught me so many life lessons aside from singing. The majority of my favorite memories are from anything music related I did. 

What is your best high school memory and why?
My best high school memory would have to be either performing Mamma Mia my sophomore year or the away game bus rides during the fall season for cheering 

What is your worst high school memory and why?
My worst high school memory would have to be the end of junior year because that is when we all got quarantined and everything kind of fell apart from there 

Which band could play the soundtrack to your high school career and why?
A band I would pick to play the soundtrack of my high school career would have to be Pentatonix because they have a way of words with their music and originals are always something very unique 

If there were a movie or TV show made about your high school days, which actor would play your part and why?
If I could have any actress play my part in a move or tv show from my high school daysI would choose Lisa Kudrow because she’s blonde, goofy, clumsy, loves animals, likes to singmakes up random lyrics, and friends are very important to her 

When you arrive at school in the morning, where is the first place you want to go and why?
When I arrive at school the first place I want to go would be back to bed but since that can’t happen, definitely the choir room because that is my second home. 

Who influenced you most during high school and why?
Mr. Di Minico influenced me the most because he always pushed me to be better and to never stop learning no matter the circumstances. 

Where do you predict you’ll end up ten years from now and why?
In 10 years I hope I’ll be somewhere relatively close to home because I want to make sure my family is always in my life. 

Which event, events will you miss the most and why?
Events I will miss the most would be all of the pep rallies and parades because they were always so energetic. I will also miss the musicals the most because they were always so much fun and when I think of high school I think of music and the performances

What is your favorite quote to live by and why?
My favorite quote would have to be “you only get one life so live outside the box and color outside the lines because being normal is boring you don’t want to be like everyone else.”
