Career goal: I plan to obtain both an undergraduate and a master’s degree in music education in order to pursue a career as a secondary education band director.

Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: Mr. Ben Light, my longtime band director, has helped shape the person I have become by fostering a space in which my confidence in both my musicianship and self can grow and develop. I hope that one day I can support a successful band program that is full of community and promising musicianship, just as he has.
