May 29th, 2014
Omaha, NE — May is almost over, but thereâ€™s still time to recognize a Classical Kid with a big heart.[audio:https://kvnonews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/jayan-web.mp3]
â€œMy favorite piece to play is â€˜PBJ Bluesâ€™ because itâ€™s very funny and it has fun lyrics in it also,â€ she said.
Anjali also plays the cello.
â€œItâ€™s also a very unique instrument because a lot of people usually play violin or viola and I decided to play the cello,â€ she said.
She says another reason she plays cello is to make music with others.
â€œA lot of my friends are also in orchestra, and I have some friends who also play the piano,â€ she said.
Anjaliâ€™s non-musical activities include creative and athletic pursuits.
â€œI like art and swimming and I do Taekwondo – Iâ€™m a blue belt,â€ she said.
Anjaliâ€™s favorite subject in school is science, though she also enjoys learning new things as a girl scout. She also volunteers, including a recent fundraising effort for the Alzheimerâ€™s Association.
â€œSo it was a lemonade and bake sale, we had a lot of people help together so that way we could help the people who have Alzheimerâ€™s,â€ she said.
Anjali is undecided about what she wants to do when she grows up, but not for lack of ideasâ€¦
â€œI used to think I would be a part-time astronaut and photographer, then I was going to be a doctor, then a nurse, then an actual photographer, and yeahâ€¦â€ she said.
