Hi Everyone! For those of you who don’t know who I am, my name is Daisy. I am a senior Music Education major. TECHNICALLY I am from Foxborough, MA but I have lived in Brooklynn, New York; Bergenfield, NJ; and I was born in Lagos Nigeria. Yeah, I never really stay in one place for too long. In fact, after living in Massachusetts for a while I kind of want to go either back to New York or move to London. I LOVE the English. I can’t even explain to you how much I love British people. I think they are so cool. <3 That might be why I love Harry Potter so much.
Now let’s talk a bit about how obsessed I am with Harry Potter. I was awarded the most likely to transfer to Hogwarts award my first year as an Orientation Leader. And then I convinced my entire floor to do a Harry Potter theme during my second year as an OL. I. Love. Harry. Potter. I am what is called a Potterphile. Don’t judge, it’s a serious condition. I am still convinced that I was supposed to get a Hogwarts letter and the owl got lost or my mom is hiding it from me. Yeah. I sound crazy. Whatev. You can all deal with it. I make it a point to quote HP and Mean Girls every day and not see a problem with it.
I also love music, though. I am a cellist. I should say classical, but if I had a choice I would be playing more pop/hip hop. I think exploring the instrument to its fullest potential is the greatest thing you can do. I spend my Tuesdays and Thursdays teaching a group of kids how to do that very thing and I’ve been doing so for four years now. The kids are great. They drive me crazy sometimes, but I love their enthusiasm. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my days. It was great to come to UMass Lowell and get to have that experience. Not a lot of people can claim that same thing.
