Aponi Geletko

When talking about life, one thing Aponi believes is that life is about taking risks and what we do with those risks is what makes life great. So always striving to be better than her yesterdays self is a must, because living life to the fullest and leaving her mark within someone else's life is what counts; making her unforgettable. When leaving her mark within someone's life, she wants to make sure she exhibits the best version of who she is. Asking, how can she identify specifically with what makes her, her? Not only does Aponi love who she is but she also loves people.

This May I will be traveling to Rome to study music, art, and diversity with the music school. Of the things that I enjoy doing, I love teaching the most. Being around my students and seeing the light bulbs go off when they understand a new topic makes me so proud to be called their teacher. One of the biggest reasons I am studying abroad is because of them.
