Profile:

Junah adores musical theater. She was cast in the original revival of Annie on Broadway, and this spring she will perform in productions of Mulan and Junie B. Jones. All aspects of singing, acting and dancing bring Junah to life. In her spare time, Junah makes origami out of all sorts of paper and then leaves it places for people to find. Junah loves reading the Harry Potter series and would like to visit London one day to experience British culture and see the places where scenes from the series took place. Junah hopes to channel her passion for debating into studying to be a lawyer. She and a friend were recently awarded first place in a debate tournament.
