I had the opportunity to interview her.

Isabella Pierotti: What is it like being in college?

Catherine Pierotti: It’s a life experience that has shaped me as an adult and I’m ready to enter society as a working citizen.

I.P: What have been your favorite memories of Obama?

C.P: When I was a senior editor in Journalism. I was one of the first classes to create the newspaper. Itwas wonderful watching it grow.

I.P: Did you play any sports?

C.P: I did. I played volleyball and softball.

I.P: What was your favorite class at Obama?

C.P: Japanese because I loved learning about the culture.

I.P: Do you have any advice for all high school students?

C.P: My advice for all high school students is to apply to as many scholarships as you can because it will help you a lot and don’t stress about what you want to be right away. Join clubs, get to know your community on campus, and rent books off of Amazon; they are way cheaper.

I.P: What is your major?

C.P: Art therapy with a minor in ceramics.

I.P: What is art therapy?

C.P: A therapeutic process where people of all ages can express their feelings through an art process. I work with children ages 11-18 who have been a victim of a traumatic event. It’s a very effective therapy and I am passionate about what I do.

I.P: Thank you for your time!

C.P: No problem, kiddo!
