Being bogged down by stress and juggling multiple deadlines, senior Kylie Vande Berg controls the chaos as best she can, much like any other high school student; but the twist with Kylie is that she devotes a myraid of her time to extracurricular activities.

On an average day, Kylie has five hours of school-related activities after the final bell has rung; being a part of the band, jazz band, the pit orchestra for theatre, lacrosse, key club, and more than 10 other extracurriculars. For her, those extracurriculars will go on for six of the nine months that she is in school.

While trying to juggle the constraints of time already bestowed from her school-related activities, Kylie also has to work an average of 20 hours per week, resulting in working like a bee and having little downtime.

“Sometimes when I’m keeping up with it all, I don’t get to go to bed or sleep.”

She goes through all of this because it will look good on her resume or college application, for her future endeavors and beyond.

She does this because it lets her stay in touch with friends that were met at the events and to have fun.

She does this because it enables her to share her talent with the world.

She does this because she grows as a person and builds her skills.

And lastly, because it gives her opportunities that would never happen otherwise like traveling to New York to play music in Central Park and Liberty Island, and to visit Chinatown, all as a member of the NHS’s marching band.

Kylie Vande Berg controls the chaos of her commitments because she meets amazing people, represents herself and her school with pride, and because she wants to create memorable experiences.
