Today, November 4, 2014, I shadowed Mercy with Kristen Gandenberger (’15). I had a great time! I have not realized how fun and exciting Mercy was before I came here.

I am in the eighth grade at St. James school in White Oak. I love softball, soccer, and dance. I am currently dancing with the Cincinnati Ballet’s Otto M. Budig Academy. So far, I have been in eight professional shows with the Cincinnati Ballet company and an additional three in the next couple of months. I’ve been dancing for as long as I could remember. Starting at age 2, I’ve been dancing with Head to Toe, Spotlight, and currently Cincinnati Ballet.

Along with dance, I am also interested in academics. From fourth to sixth grade, I was in the Accelerated Curriculum Language Arts Program (ACLAP) in my school, I have received the Circle of Excellence Award in my school multiple times, and got third place in my school’s geography bee. I also hope to do academic activities in high school.

I had an amazing time at Mercy! Every one really accepted me and gave me an amazing experience. I really hope to become a future bobcat!
