I ended up starting the oboe, which till this day is the love of my life. During the Seventh Grade I was introduced to the Central Illinois Youth Symphony. I auditioned for it and their Flute Choir on, Oboe, Flute, and Bassoon (picking up and learning only a week before auditions). When the results came in I found out that I had made all three parts doubling Oboe and Bassoon in the Central Illinois Concert Orchestra (2013-2014). The season was very successful but soon came to an end.
When Dylan entered his teenage years, he began listening to rock and roll. Throughout Dylan’s high school years, he formed multiple different sounding bands that often played at his high school talent shows and were influenced by Elvis and Little Richard. In the late nineteen fifties Dylan moved to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota, often performing at a coffee shop on campus. When he attended university, he happened to change his name from “Robert Allen Zimmerman”, to ‘Bob Dylan”, even crediting his name to one of his favorite poets, “Dylan Thomas”. His aspiration of entering the music industry originally crossed his mind in college.
Every year around the time in spring, my school administrator makes the whole high school take one big picture together for the school yearbook to show our so called, "School pride." and "together-ness." They split us up into our classes, but there is a chance for all the people who have friends in a grade above or below to say a quick hi before getting split up. It was just a few months ago that I was with my two best friend- Suzy and Taeyeon- sitting in the schools crowded and loud gym waiting for the picture to be taken when a group of good looking upper classman

The past school year of 2016-2017, twenty upperclassmen worked alongside club advisors and me to create the infamous night at Manasquan High School: Squan-A-Thon. The twelve-hour dance-a-thon that is focused on raising money for local children with cancer or affected by other serious illnesses. However, for the committee that plans the night, it is moreso a twenty-four-hour shift. The decorating begins once the students leave at 2:30 pm and does not stop until the participating students arrive back at 7:00 pm for check-in. The committee members dedicate their school year and summer raising money through various fundraising efforts,

I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.
Smithville recently had Kyle Holt, Michael Fletcher, Amberly Langford, and Colton James placed in honorable mention (playing Jazz Drum Set, Tuba, Clarinet, and Tenor Saxophone,respectively) and we had Greta Zolynas (Alto Saxophone) place 2nd chair! On the second Saturday of December, all three bands (Middle School,High School, and High School Honor) took part in an all-day clinic with three special guest directors.
