My future plana are to attend the University of PennWest Edinboro, majoring in early-childhood education, minoring in speech pathology. While attending college, I and my fellow FLP members, will be working closely with the Winter Guard International (WGI) DEI Committee and Executive Board members in hopes of creating initiatives/programs to build social growth within the arts. I also plan to continue working at Small World Daycare, as it prepares me to have my own classroom someday.
