I’m a 18 year old JC! While I am originally from Piedmont, CA I currently attend a boarding school in Colorado Springs, Colorado called The Fountain Valley School of Colorado. Which is where I will graduate from in May of 2018. I started at Camp Augusta 5 years ago as a camper in Cedar 3, I was hooked after my first year and came back for the next two summers! Last year I participated in the CIRCLE Program, and decided to apply to the JC Program which is how I got where I am today! Here are some of the things I love to do!
I love to act! While I have only been an actor in one show, where I played Lazar Wolfe in my high schools production of Fiddler on the Roof, I loved every moment of it and I expect to continue acting in the future!
I love to spend time with my friends! One unique aspect of boarding school is that I live with some of my closest friends, and very close to others who are day students! I love every moment I spend with them and they have truly made my my high school experience memorable!
I love to travel! This photo was taken of me on a school trip while in Belgium! I spent all of my childhood traveling across the United States going to different states and landmarks, and I had never left the country until March 2016 when a school trip took me to the Dominican Republic to teach kids english! I took advantage of another school trip this year and went to France and Belgium to practice the French I had been learning for 6 years!
I love Animals! I have had a dog all of my life, and when I was a baby I would always eat with the dogs, because I could share my food with them! The one time the dogs were outside while I ate, I cried until my mom let them in!
Family is very important to me, I have 3 sisters, and because I don’t get to see my family so often every moment with them is precious!
I absolutely love music! This love stems from my parents, who raised me to love music. As a child my favorite songs were “Get off Of My Cloud” By the Rolling Stones, “Barbra-Ann” By the Beach Boys and anything by Sly and The Family Stone or the Beatles. Music has been a passion of mine for my entire life! As a result I currently play Baritone and Electric bass in my school band, however, I prefer to play Tuba so I will be playing Tuba and Electric Bass next year!
Finally, I love taking photos, I usually use my dads old Nikon which still uses film. My favorite type of picture to take is of nature because I love how a photo can capture a place! And since I know you were probably curious, here is a photo of my school’s beautiful campus in Colorado Springs!
