Junior Melissa Alms


Anna Zheng, Social Media Editor

“I play the bagpipes. [I’ve been learning] for two, three years. To be honest, I still don’t feel comfortable with it! But I saw a video on YouTube and I was like, ‘I want to do that!’ I think most people don’t really think about it that much, but when you say it, they’re amazed that you play it. I love how large and commanding it sounds. I love it. It annoys my family members, though — especially my mom, she’s always like, ‘Melissa, wear earbuds,’ but it doesn’t even bug me anymore. [My favorite song is] ‘Green Hills of Tyrol’.
