Hi, I’m Danielle Armstrong and I’m a Junior at the Valley Academy of the Arts & Sciences. I have been working with the SFV Nisei since I was 9 years old helping the tournament committee as a lane monitor and office help. I also work some of the Southern California NBA tournaments as a lane monitor as well. My family bowls and I also enjoy it very much too.
I’m an active member of the Associated Student Body of my High School and plan to be President next year. I spend all of my free time performing and I have been in every musical performance at my school since its opening. After High School, I’m looking forward to my college education and I am keeping my options open in regards to which school I will be attending. I would like to thank you all for the generous scholarship provided and please know that the funds will be used wisely to further my education.
