When I was 6, I started elementary school at Henry Elementary. All throughout Henry, I was one/one of the “smartest” kids in my grade. I was bored very often because I flew through every assignment given to me. I also really enjoyed singing. In 3rd grade, I joined my church choir, and I instantly loved it. This set me up to join choir once I got to middle school.
I had many many friends in elementary school, and we hung out quite often. I remember my favorite thing to do with my friends when I was younger, was to sled down a huge hill that one of my friends had in their backyard. We would go over the same trail over and over until the snow turned into super packed ice and then we would cover it in dish soap. This of course happened before global warming decided to make it 80 degrees in the middle of October.
Through 4th and 5th grade, I started getting more involved in singing. In the 4th and 5th grade choir at my church, called “Music Makers,” I got a featured role in both year’s musicals. This really boosted my confidence and made me want to continue singing.
Also, in 5th grade, I started volleyball. I didn’t know it then, but this would end up being a huge part of my life. I wasn’t very good at it when I started, but it was the first sport I actually enjoyed playing, so I wanted to get better. This was the biggest reason that I eventually got pretty good.
