Senior Sarah Mueller Shares Her Aspirations to Sing Caption: At a gay pride picnic, Sarah Mueller shows her pride and courage with the LGBTQ+ flag. “You need courage to put yourself in front of people and accept criticism, because criticism and discomfort are what help you grow as an artist. You need pride to be proud enough of what you’re doing to keep doing it, even when it drives you crazy,” said Mueller.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to write and record music in my free time, and practice instruments in general, primarily guitar and piano.
Who’s someone you admire and why?
I admire Kamala Harris and other strong women who go into fields that have historically been dominated by men. I like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift because they have a hand in producing their own music, something which is notably rare. There’s a 47:1 ratio when it comes to male to female producers.
What’s something you’re known for?
I think I’m known for being decently smart and nice. And I sing a lot, so there’s a fair chance that people know me for that.
What’s something you want to be known for?
I want to be known for making my own music and being a self producing artist who’s incredibly good at what she does, even without the expensive guidance that others have.
Why did you start singing?
I started singing because it was something that came naturally to me. I still had to work at it to sound more professional among other things, but singing has always been like second nature to me.
Why do you enjoy singing and what does it mean to you?
I enjoy it for a multitude of reasons. It helps me express myself, even if I ordinarily can’t find the words, I can definitely sing them. It’s a way to relate to people and connect with them emotionally while keeping them perceptive and comfortable. It’s also an escape, it takes what is often emotionally insurmountable, and transforms it into something beautiful.
