How long have you been involved in Anima?

I have been in Amina for 13 years. I started when I was in kindergarten!

What is your favorite Anima memory?

My favorite Anima memory was walking a long the Cliffs of Moher on a beautifully sunny day. I also loved singing “Steal Away” in Old St Patrick’s Cathedral. One more! I loved singing at the S.C. Johnson conference in Wisconsin as a Treble Chorister and having the chefs cook us a meal (It was the first and only time I’d ever had a chef cook my meal!). One more! I loved singing as part of the Nutcracker at the Joffrey Ballet!

What will you remember most about Anima?

Anima has provided me with some of the best and most memorable experiences of my life. I have learned so much about singing and music theory through my participation in Anima. I have also met some of my best friends in Anima. Anima is so much more than just a choir, it is a community that brings people with a passion for music and love of singing together. I will never forget the impact Anima has had on me and my childhood. I will forever be grateful to have been part of such an amazing program.

What are your plans next year?

Next year I will be attending Barnard College of Columbia University in Manhattan New York to study biochemistry. I plan on continuing my singing career by participating in extracurricular choir groups and other opportunities that present themselves.
