Pine Island High School

Public Speaking

The jobs that really energized me were the sales and DJing. If I didn't have to set up all my own interviews I would probably still be selling. Talking on the microphone made me feel so strong and confident, also playing music was pretty sweet.


Almost all of my jobs have included food in someway, I really just enjoy cooking. I am however open to any field, and would like to learn a skill that I could always use.
