What charity have you chosen to represent?

I represent Autism Speaks because I have had the privilege of interacting and working with many people with various mental handicaps, including my little brother Jonah. Let me be the first to tell you that these people have been the most earnest, caring, and respectable people I have met, and in a wonderful district like this we can bring out the full potential of these wonderful individuals.

What would be your advice to underclassmen?

Get involved! Join that club, or take that elective! I’ve met some of my best friends and had some of my best experiences because I decided to try something new, so I cannot stress how important it is to take risks.

What quote best describes your outlook on life?

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the Present.”

Favorite pick up line?

Hey girl, are you an appendix? ‘Cause my gut feeling is telling me to take you out!

If you could pick anyone other than yourself to win, who would it be?

Honestly? Any one of us could win and I’d see it as 100% understandable why they won. Everybody that I’ve worked with has been wonderful and I’m excited for the night of the show!

Why should we choose you to be Mr. Washington Twp 2017?

Well, it’d make me pretty happy! I like to think I add something to what I participate in, so I hope I add a dash of humor, a smidge of humility, and a lot of clumsy dancing to the stage!

What cartoon character do you relate to the most?

Quasimodo. But really, Winnie the Pooh, ‘Cause I always try to remain positive in whatever I do… And it’s not fat, it’s fluff!

Childhood aspiration vs. current aspiration?

Well, my original dream was, and I quote, “Ride a horse on the moon while cooking and playing the saxophone.” As of now, I’ve narrowed it down the the saxophone thing.

What is your hidden talent?

I can cry on the spot. I know, it’s a pretty tear-able talent.

Has the Mr. Washington Twp nomination changed your life?

I’m still me, I’m not any different than I was before. Sure I might know a few more people and might be a little more confident with myself, but at the end of the day I got on because I had wonderful friends and people to support me, and if anything, they are what changed my life.

What is the number one thing you look for in a significant other?

They have to be able to handle my, er, personality. If they don’t run away in the first five minutes of conversation I’m honestly impressed.

How do you want to be remembered at WTHS?

Not as anything especially important, just as someone who hopefully changed some people’s lives for the better.

Favorite movie?

Winnie the Pooh. If there’s ever a time I want to be drawn back to my childhood, I just need watch this little gem.

If you could change the mascot, what would it be?

In Wedgwood we had a stallion as our mascot, and come to think of it having a whole bunch of people supporting our sports team by wearing horse heads would be -very- entertaining.

If you could address any issue the world faces today, what would it be?

I’d like to eliminate discrimination of all types and have everybody treat each other as equals. A lofty goal, but every step taken towards it is a step in the right direction.

If you had the chance, what would you change about yourself?

I wish I was more confident and could talk and help more people. I also wish I could do a flip, but that’s besides the point!

If you could live anywhere other than the US, where would it be?

I’d love to live in Germany. It’s an absolutely beautiful place and it’s an epicenter of music, which is very important to me. Other than that I’d love to live in Rome for its historical and cultural significance and Paris for its geological and political importance

What teacher at WTHS has had the most impact on your high school career?

I’ve known Mr. Corigliano since my first audition with him in 8th grade where I cried for about 20 minutes afterwards. I’d like to think I’ve gotten a little better, but the fact stands that he’s always been there for me and he’s helped me grow as a musician and as an individual.

What person has had the most impact on you as a person?

My brother Jack because I can still remember clearly the days of sitting in the basement watching him play games and crack jokes. He influenced my personality and my habits in life.

If you could bring three things with you to a deserted island, what would they be?

A rocket ship, a navigation system, and a year’s supply of food. I’m not going back to civilization, I’m going to Mars!

What are your aspirations and plans for after graduation?

I am going to Rowan for instrumental music and would like to get either my Master’s or my Doctorate along with a teaching degree. I’d like to play in a pit band professionally, but as I pursue that I plan to take some teaching jobs and hopefully pass on my love of music to children like my teachers have with me.

If you could be any kitchen appliance, what would you be?

A knife, for my sharp wit, cutting intellect, and the fact that that people should be careful when running with me.

If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what would be your greatest weakness?

I shall be the Steel Guy, and his weakness is mentioning Iron Man around him.

Favorite video game?

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

If you could create a class at WTHS, what would it be?

Piano, ‘cause it’s such a valuable musical instrument to learn and I wish I knew how to play it better.

Favorite animal?

Seal, because I can relate to chubby but cute things.

If you could have any kind of accent, what would it be?

Scandinavian so I can finally yodel without getting looked at weirdly.

Favorite ice cream flavor?

Pistachio ‘cause I’m weird.

Describe your dream vacation:

A trip across the entirety of Europe, from Spain to Russia.

Describe your dream date:

To have one.

Who is your favorite fictional character?

Quasimodo, because I can appreciate his struggles and love to see the character development in his story.
