Hello everyone! My name is Kendra and here are a couple tidbits about myself in case you want to know more about the person writing these posts:
Listening to music is one of my most favorite things to do, and I’ll listen to all kinds. I also love seeing plays (preferably comedies) at the Williamston Theatre and the Wharton Center. I play the piano and hope to eventually be able to play part of la campanella (which has got to be the hardest piece there is). My family includes my mom, dad, sister, two dogs, and cat. Lastly, volunteering all over the community has become my biggest hobby, where I get to enjoy meeting all these wonderful groups of people and can leave my own mark on my community.
