This is my seventh Warrior Words column and I realize I haven’t really given anyone the opportunity to get to know me. Eight months ago in my bio, you read that I’m passionate about theater, learning languages, and most importantly singing; for this week’s column, I decided that I’m going to talk about the latter.
It all began three years ago when I decided the only way to improve my theatrical abilities was by singing. At first, I was too terrified to sing in front of anyone, let alone audition for a voice school. It was my mom who called me one day saying she signed me up for an audition at Musical Theatre of Connecticut. As a small, awkward sophomore just delving into the art of showboating, I was terrified to sing in front of strangers. Well, the time for auditioning came and went, and soon I was driving to my voice teacher every Wednesday to practice new material and hone my techniques.
