Shya Pellegrini

Shya Pellegrini

The Arts have been a passion of mine since I was little, whether for painting, dance, singing, playing an instrument, or just listening to the beautiful symphonies.  Music has gotten me through the toughest times.   I specifically believe that without the Arts I would not be the kind of person I am today.  I like to follow the quote by Emilie Zola: ‘I would rather die of passion than of boredom.’  This passion for me is playing the French Horn and taking part in and enjoying many of the Arts.  I love to paint in my free time and create pieces of art during any type of mood I am in.”   Shya is a student at Martin County High School.  In college she will major in an as yet undesignated field and minor in the Arts.
