This is a video of the DeKalb winter percussion 2017 IPA percussion scholastic A state finals performance. This was my first year in the drumline program here at DeKalb. I really had to step out of my comfort zone to join drumline, It was something I had never done and I didn't know if I could do it.Drumline was a huge commitment it was three hours of practice every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Not to mention your entire Saturday because of competitions and I didn't miss one performance or practice the entire four months of the season. I also had to learn how to play a different instrument and a new marching style. Drumline is a group activity and you're truly only as strong as your weakest link and I managed to fit myself into the group.

This is a documentary about Adolfo Kaminsky that was made for the National History Day project in world bio. For this project we to make some form of presentation to represent how someone significant took a stand in history. My group chose the Beer Hall Putsch in the beginning and actually ended up changing to Adolfo Kaminsky. We were faced with many challenges after choosing the topic of Adolfo, there was not that much information about him because he played a small role in the French Rebellion. But we managed pervale in what was one of my favorite projects, we made something we were proud of.
