    Favorite subject?
    Band. Band I think has the biggest effect on my life. It requires devotion with a lot hours practicing and instruction. It also teaches teamwork and multitasking. Unlike a game, with music you are always playing and participating. You don’t sit out.  I think it will help me in college and in life to focus and be dedicated to stay on task throughout life.
