Who is Annika?
My name is Annika Nelson and I'm a current senior at West Sound Academy. Ever since I was little, I was surrounded by theatre, so it was only natural for me to try it. I started doing theatre because I felt as though I needed too, but later on, I fell in love with the theatre on my own. On top of having the average homework load of a high schooler and trying to spend time with friends, my life is pretty packed. One of the main reasons why I love theatre is the fact that I get to take on a whole new character who isn't Annika; I don't have to worry about how others see me or interpret what I say. I don't have to worry about all my other outside issues and just pay attention to what I'm doing in the present.
