I was born and raised in the small Eastern Idaho town of Shelley, so I enjoy the beauty in the surrounding area, including the mountains, rivers, and short hikes where I can see the wildflowers. I love to read, mostly fiction, although I do have some non-fiction as well. I love to spend time with my family and having 7 siblings gets a little hectic at times, but it’s so much fun getting together for an activity. And I occasionally dabble in the Arts. I have participated in ballroom dance, art classes, and more recently, performed in multiple productions at The Virginia Theater located in Shelley, ID. Some of my favorites include: “Pirates of Penzance”, “Midsummer Nights’ Dream”, and “A Christmas Carol.” I have also learned to run lights and sound for productions as well as been a Co-Director for the 2017 production of “A Christmas Carol.” Watching a production come together with lights, music, props, set, and cast, gave me such a feeling of satisfaction.
Why I Became Involved with the SSA
While I did participate in some sports, volleyball and tennis being my favorite, it was never such a big draw for me. Ever since I was little I loved to sing. I remember watching musicals with my family and ballets with my mother. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was always a treasure, especially the barn dance. I appreciate all forms of art, since it is always exciting to see others display their talents, as well as see the youth flourish when they are able to grow and develop a talent that they didn’t realize they possessed. And I think it is influential for those children have opportunities to participate in those activities that promote the arts, as there are some children, who like me, don’t feel like competing in sports.
