Hello! I'm Alexandrite, a highschool student who is both trying to make money to help with my future college fees and get experience with children, as I am trying to go into a field where interactions with children are fairly standard. I am an avid learner, artist, and am currently the section leader of the alto saxophones in my school's marching band, the vice president (future president!) of Lane's theatrical design club, and was previously a c/SSG in JROTC. I am enrolled in multiple AP courses, the CCCs dual enrollment college program, and all of my non-AP courses are honors classes. I'm responsible, beloved by adults, communicative, and receptive to criticism.
