The age of discovery

Throughout senior high all creative outlets available were explored. Participating in all theatrical productions on stage or behind the scenes. Achieving individual state awards as a member of the speech team. Earning literary awards for writing poetry and short stories. Ultimately earning a national design award as the photo and design editor for the senior yearbook.

While earning numerous accolades and lettering every year, in each creative endeavor, the pursuit of learning and discovering direction for my creative passion continued. Writing and recording original music, then performing that music live in front of 300. Learning all the latest dance moves and winning dance competitions. Taking summer jobs to direct community theater while auditioning for acting gigs, even authoring original plays and scripts.

During those years, a new ability and creative outlet would soon be discovered.
