She has been playing the flute for 2 consecutive years and plans on continuing with it all throughout highschool. Some of her interests are reading, acting, and having movie marathons with her friends. Presently, she does not really know what career she'd like to pursue, though she is highly interested in the biological field of sciences. She has participated in two sciences fairs in grade 6 and 7, but they were recreational and she was with a partner. This is her first official science fair on her own.
