At school, she has directed and played the lead in a dozen school plays and spring musicals, including "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Guys and Dolls," "Pippin" and "The Foreigner."

She has a 4.0 grade point average and sings madrigals, chorale and in a women's octet. She belongs to the National Honor Society and is a National Merit Scholar as well as a Maryland Distinguished Scholar finalist.

Outside school, she has volunteered at the Columbia Festival of the Arts and Project PROMise, a program that recycles prom dresses with proceeds going to the homeless. She also has participated in community theater and was in the musical theater program at Columbia School for the Arts.

Plans: She wants to major in musical theater and is choosing between Syracuse University, Catholic University and the University of Miami.

Her comments: As a child, "I couldn't decide whether I was more interested in drama or more interested in art," she said. "So I did both and I stuck with drama. I love it. It's the only thing I can imagine doing. I just love to perform."
