My main hobbies throughout the years have been dancing, 4-H, caring for animals, and being in band.
I have been dancing for almost 16 years now. I took classes at the local dance studio from the time I was 3 until I graduated high school. I was part of my high school’s dance team for 3 years. Last semester I was in Orchesis II and took a ballet class.
For 4-H, I showed horses, rabbits, poultry, and did art hall entries for the Lee County Fair. I also showed rabbits at the state fair. I was the secretary, vice-president, and historian of my club. I was involved for 9 years.
I started playing flute in 5th grade. I now also play piccolo and some piano. In middle school, I auditioned for SEIBA honor band and was accepted. Throughout high school, I auditioned for SEIBA and All-State honor bands, and I was accepted to SEIBA my senior year. I was in both the concert and marching bands at my high school. I am now in the concert band at Iowa State.
