“When I was in elementary school, I was seen as an outcast. I didn’t have many friends, and people thought I was different. As time went on, I tried all kinds of sports but was never really good at any of them. The one thing I was good at was supporting my neighbor Michelle by going to her high school choir shows. After going to so many of those shows, I finally convinced myself I would join the show choir in junior high. (Joining) choir was a breath of fresh air. I fit in, and most of all, I wasn’t half bad.”
