Warren’s classes include AP European History, German 2 Honors, Honors Chemistry, Wind Ensemble Honors, Math 2 Honors, English 10 Honors, and ROP Intro to Law.
Outside of Mock Trial, Warren plays the French horn in Buena’s Wind Ensemble and has been playing since sixth grade “I enjoy it because it allows me to create something beautiful with the rest of the band.” She said, “It’s also taught me a lot about music and made me more able to appreciate music.”
Warren is in 10th grade and she can show that being such a young age you can participate in such a mature activity.
