All About ME

Why you chose this class?

My sister, Emily, took this class last year. She is the one that persuaded me to sign up to take this class, so I thought I would give it a shot. Not to mention, I had an extra spot for an elective that needed to be filled in.

Personal Piece

My absolute favorite thing to do in life is sing. I've been in choir since 3rd grade, and Varsity choir since 7th grade. I'm currently a soprano in the Byron Nelson High School

A Cappella Choir. Another thing I'm interested in is theatre. Every year I am blessed to have a role in the musical. My freshman and sophomore years I just played in the chorus. This year, I have a minor role, as Young Fiona, in Shrek the Musical, that I'm very excited about. An interesting thing about me is that I'm the odd ball of my family. A lot of my friends have families with musical backgrounds, but I'm the only one in my family that likes to sing and be a part of musical theatre; everyone else in my family is very athletic. My favorite type of music other than choral or classical is Christian. When I'm driving in my car or sitting at home doing homework, I'll turn on Christian radio station 94.9 and start singing along. When I get out of high school, I want to go to UNT and major in music education. This will prepare me to be a choir director in the future. My plan B is to major in music therapy, in order to teach the special needs children how to read music.

What do you like about Byron Nelson High School?

I love that Byron Nelson High School has a large number of opportunities for students to get involved. The students and staff here are all very welcoming and very friendly to everyone they come across. I appreciate how hard we as students work throughout our classes; how we set our academic goals really high and try our best to achieve those goals. I enjoy our pep rallies and the large amount of school spirit and bobcat pride we have here, as well.

I don't have a twitter account, but if I did I would follow a college choir. Choir relates to psychology because you have that bond with everyone you are singing with. We trust one another, especially in sight reading, to sing the right notes and rhythms. We all experience it differently, but in the end we come together. Music is therapeutic because singing let's one express themself and let's one relate to what they are singing about.
