What most people didn't know about me: I played the flute from 4th grade until 6th grade where I picked up the Clarinet instead. I wanted to play the clarinet so bad but all the spots were filled and I had to wait for what seemed to be years until a spot opened up for me. I'm thankful I had a chance with the flute. It's such a beautiful sound.
