A recent interview with Nychaela:
What is your favorite thing about Caliber?
My favorite thing about Caliber is the Diversity, from the students to the different teaching styles of our fabulous teachers and staff.
What was your favorite subject when you were in school and why?
My favorite subject in school was Human Anatomy, I love Fitness and Science and anatomy combined both of my favorite subjects. It is truly amazing how the body works!
What is your favorite memory associated with music (maybe a memorable concert, or playing an instrument yourself!)?
The closest memory I have with music is dancing! Sorry, I can't play an instrument if my life depended on it! However I’ve been a dancer for 22 years, Liturgical and Cultural dances are my go to. I’ve been a Liturgical dancer since I was 5 years old. In 2012, my mom Hosted a Breast Cancer event at our church and asked me to dance to honor all of the Breast Cancer Survivors. This was a special dance to me because my Grandmother was a Breast Cancer Survivor and she got to see me dance for the first and last time. It was a great feeling because it was in honor of HER! She passed away 2015.
If you could go on a dream vacation, what would you do + where would you go?
Gosh, a hotel over the sea. I’d like to wake up and swim with the Dolphins. I don’t know why but I’ve always wanted to get lifted out of the water by a Dolphin.
What is your favorite thing about the Bay Area (or specifically Vallejo)?
My favorite thing about the Bay Area is that there are many events. I can do something different every weekend.
