JILLIAN CARSON- LITERARY
Jillian has been a fervorous writer for as long as she can remember. Her greatest school teacher influence is her former creative writing teacher, Ms. Garrett. Ms. Garrett has been Jillian’s mentor for the past two years, helping her edit work, sponsoring her for writing contests, and pushing her to reach her full potential. Jillian will be attending Stony Brook University in fall 2020 to study creative writing. She hopes to one day work as an editor or a publicist while pursuing her dream of becoming a published author. In her spare time, Jillian reads, rides horses, and edits for teen literary magazine Footprints on Jupiter.
AVA DELLAPI – VISUAL ARTS
My name is Ava Dellapi and I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. My greatest influencers are my high school art teacher, Ms. Giallanza, as well as my family, who have supported me through it all. This fall I plan to attend SUNY New Paltz as an art education major in order to pursue my aspirations of becoming a high school art teacher.
DAPHNE SPARACIO- PERFORMING ARTS
Daphne has been involved with music all her life. She was fortunate enough to get into SCMEA, NYSCAME and All-State Jazz throughout her years of high school. She was also given lead roles in the past two musicals, as Rosa in The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Mabel in The Pirates Of Penzance. This March she came down with a mild case of Bell’s Palsy, which restricts movement in the left side of her face. This however did not stop her from singing and in fact, singing will help her get better!
