FAVORITE LACHSA MEMORY?
I was walking down the hallway and Barry Markowitz stopped me a a few other kids. He then went into a study hall to grab more kids. He gave us all pieces of paper with his face on them to go into where wendy markowitz, his wife, was subbing. We went into the room held the paper over our faces and said "happy birthday honey!" I still have the picture of barry's face.
PLANS FOR FUTURE/COLLEGE
I plan on going to college for film and become a producer.
