Janelle Somerville, 13, on life
I want to get into finance and every time I say that to kids they’re always like, “Why would you want to do that?” But I do want to do finance for business. That’s my dream. I probably wouldn’t do it for a very small business or a very big business. More like one that’s successful but not like, you know, McDonald’s, which is really, really, really big. I would manage the money for the business and I would really like that.
I like it because it’s a yes or no answer, which is nice. It’s not like a social science where there is a yes, no or maybe so. There is yes and there is no. So that’s nice to have.
I do modern dance, jazz, and ballet. I only started modern this year and jazz the year before. I really like ballet. I find it quite interesting but I also really enjoy jazz because you move a lot and it works on your flexibility, which is really important for ballet.
You’ve got the mountains right there. They’re good for hiking, good for skiing. They just give you a lot of opportunity for things to do, a place to go away that’s not too far so it’s easy to only go away for a weekend.
