Q: How long have you been in the band?
A: I started band in eighth grade when I twirled baton, and I’ve done it for four years at the high school as a raiderette.
Q: Do you participate in anything other than band?
A: At the high school I also participate in cross country, math team, Spanish club, national honors society, and I am the senior class Vice President.
Q: What is your favorite part about band?
A: My favorite part about band is being able to meet new people with the same interest as me, and making memories with my friends.
Q: What is your least favorite part about band?
A: My least favorite part about band was some of the very cold football games where we had to sit (or perform) in the pouring rain or even snow!
Q: What made you start band?
A: I started band in middle school because I thought it looked like a lot of fun, and my mom and sister twirled baton. I decided to switch to raiderettes when I came to the high school because with a gymnastics background I had more experience with the dance aspect.
Q: What do you think that the hardest part of band was?
A: I think band camp was definitely very difficult. At times it was a struggle to learn all the routines and to learn the placements on the field in one or two weeks, but it was all worth it in the end.
