Kaci Ngo – Finalist
Kaci is an 8th grader at Castillero Junior High School – our first finalist from that school in some time! She became interested in art when in the 6th grade and has enjoyed her classes, though she also likes to express her creativity in the performing arts. Kaci likes to sing and she enjoyed performing in a recent production of Bugsy Malone. She will attend Leland High next school year and though she has college aspirations, she hasn’t yet decided which field she’d like to pursue – keeping her options open!
