My name is Aniqa Jalal, and I am a Grade 10 student at Halifax West High School. I have played violin for six years. I branched out into playing in auditioned ensembles three years ago. I am currently a member of the Halifax Regional Art Symphony Orchestra and the Halifax Regional Arts Honour Violins. Besides violin, I play the flute and ukulele. I am involved in national debate, track and field, cross country and spend my spare time volunteering. I give back to my community at my local library, the IWK Children’s Hospital and the Discovery Centre. I am beyond excited to start a new chapter of my life in which I am welcomed into a new school and orchestral ensemble!
