Do you have any pets?
What is your favorite genre of music?
R&B or Alternative.
When and how did your interest in music begin?
In Pre-K, I told my teacher I wanted to be a pop star. I’ve always loved music because my parents always played it. My mom played a lot of soul music like Al Green and Marvin Gaye. My dad was into classic rock so I listened to Queen and Journey.
Who is your favorite music artist? Why?
My favorite music artist is Tori Kelly. She’s one of the only artists that I’ve ever listened to all of their songs. Her music is relatable and every song has a meaning.
If you could perform on stage with anyone, who would it be? Why?
If I could perform on stage with anyone, it would be Hozier. His songs are my favorite to sing and I love that he doesn’t do too much when he performs. He just has to bring his guitar, stand and sing.
How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I’m still trying to figure out who I am as an artist. For now, I’d say I’m calm, smooth, passionate and soft when it comes to singing.
Who do you most admire? Why
I look up to my parents the most. They’ve been through a lot individually and together, but are still amazing role models and communicate with one another to best take care of my family.
What are some of your interests/hobbies other than music?
I’m in student council and AP classes. I really like to study and learn new things. I also love to write and take pictures.
What is something interesting about you?
I’m a sister. A lot of people are, but it’s interesting to me because nothing is as important as my family.
What qualities do you have that you believe are unique?
I’m really forgiving, empathetic, and not afraid to ask for help.
Have you ever received any prominent award or recognition for anything you've done? (music, art, academics, athletics, etc.)
I received an award for best student halfway through the year for Spanish. I also received student of the year for PAP English.
Is there anything you would like everyone to know about you?
Just that my loved ones and music are my favorite things.
