What is a favorite High School moment(s): “One of my favorite high school memories was having the opportunity to portray the lead in my school’s musical this past year. Even though I’d wished to play such a big role from the moment I found out the high school had a stage, I never imagined I truly would have had the chance.”

Hobbies, School Activities and Accomplishments: “I spent most of my time after school in my director’s classroom, rehearsing with the DoReMigos on Tuesday’s, singing with the Chorale on Thursday’s, and getting into character every other weeknight with the theater department.”

“As of June 2, 2022, I am the recipient of the Whitehall High School Theater Award and the National School Choral Award. I was also asked to speak at the Freddy’s Awards when our show was nominated for the Air Products Education and Community Impact Award.”

What is a favorite moment(s) about your internship: “My favorite moments include my first live post-game interview with Dallas Holmes, sideline reporting The Zephyrs vs the Patriots back in January, and writing my article on the Saquon Barkley Number Retirement Game.”

Thoughts of St. Luke’s partnership with “I couldn’t imagine a better partnership for these two. They work side by side in all D11 does, in ways many wouldn’t even notice.”

Plans after college: “The end goal is to get famous for doing what I love, but until then I want to start a wedding photography business, something that will allow me to take what I learned at college, and still put it to good use, even if Hollywood doesn’t come knocking right away.”
