"I've played varsity ice hockey for four years and love flying across the ice, but what people might not know is that I've always loved writing. Taking a creative writing course at PDS really changed the way I viewed my writing and helped me to grow as a writer. I became a Writing Center mentor to help others with their writing, which is challenging and a great way to continue my own learning. I've published a few pieces in the PDS literary magazine, cymbals, and writing is definitely something I want to keep pursuing.
For my senior project, I'm getting my pilot's license, taking flight lessons in a Cessna 172 out of Trenton-Mercer Airport. I'm keeping a journal as part of the project, to tie in with my writing. It's like a diary, but also includes creative pieces based on some of my experiences. Flying is something I've wanted to do for a long time, but initially my dad said, "There's no way you're getting a pilot's license before you can even drive a car."
