She loves her friends and family dearly, including her cat Barnaby.
Jacquelyn is an eighth grader who has a deep interest and appreciation for classical music, especially music with piano or violin, both of which she plays. She also loves Latin, math, history, science, bunnies, and tons of other things, but mostly likes to be with her friends. This is her first year working on a Seevak project, and because she is horribly technologically challenged, she contributed to the research and writing done on the renowned Desmond Tutu, for she was fascinated by his work in abolishing Apartheid.
