If June didn't love playing the violin so much, she may have chosen to play the bassoon because John makes it look really fun. She has designed her own major in Communication Disorders. When asked what she wants to do when she grows up, she said, "When I grow up I wanna be famous. I want to be a star, would like to be in movies. Maybe I could see the world, possibly drive nice cars, and I would like some groupies!" If asked to perform at karaoke night, June jump on the chance to sing When I Grow Up by the Pussy Cat Dolls. June is also a CA in Persons Hall and plays for the Varsity Golf team, but if you really want to catch her, you will probably find her in her room watching Netflix.
