Hills’ Featured Student

Hey, Hills! Every Trailblazer issue, we will be featuring a different student. December’s student is the beautiful and incredibly talented Rosey Lambert. Rosey is a junior at Hills who is dedicated to, and extremely involved in theater. If I were you, I’d get her autograph now, before the lines get too long; this girl is on her way to making it big in this world.

Full Name: Rosemary Emma Lambert

Q: Who is your biggest inspiration?

A: My biggest inspiration is my mom because when I was 2 my parents got divorced and for a while it was my mom raising my brother and I…and she made being a little kid so great. She’s always been such a great mom. She’s just the type of person I want to be in life. She’s fun, loving, and she’s just a beautiful human being. She really is.

Q: What is your favorite school subject and why?

A: Probably English, just because I like discussing writing and finding deeper meaning in something that an author wrote, that maybe you didn’t originally think that he meant. I do the same thing with music all the time, and its even cooler because you have to analyze the lyrics, and see how the music is written.

Q: Has what you do in English class enriched your learning experience in music, or vice versa?

A: I think that theater has helped me more in English, and with school in general, especially with presentations. I don’t really get nervous with public speaking at all.

Q: What is something about you that most people wouldn’t know about you?

A: Probably that I am a very spiritual person. I’ve always considered myself mature; when I was little, my mom used to say that I was such an old soul. It’s the weirdest thing. I’m very in touch with who I am on the inside and it affects what I do. I like inspirational, motivational things. My goal in life is to live the most that I can live; just to live the hell out of life.

Q: How did you first get involved in theater?

A: Well, I first saw the movie “Annie” when I was around 3 years old, and I would just dance around my living room and stand on top of my dining room table, singing “Tomorrow.” Then, when I was 8 years old, one of my friends was in a show so I was like “Oh, I’ll do a show, too.” It was a show called “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and at the time I couldn’t even pronounce the word “Technicolor” so I was just like “Joseph and the Amazing Technical Colored Dreamcoat.” I got a great role and I remember I came offstage after that show and I said to my mom, like dead serious, “Mom, I was born for the stage.” That’s what I said to my mom at 8 years old.

Q: How much time per week do you dedicate to theater?

A: I do something probably every day. I either have rehearsal, a voice lesson, or I’ll just look things up, and read things.

Q: What do you love most about theater?

A: Well I know theater gives me a way to express myself like nothing else can. I’ve thought about this before, and I’ve always thought about Halloween…like why do people like Halloween so much? For me, it isn’t really that big of a deal…but I thought about it and it’s because I do so many shows, and I get to dress up as different people all throughout the year; other people just get to dress up as a character for one night. Doing theater, I get to express every version and every color or who I am by playing different people.

Q: Is there anything you don’t like about theater?

A: Just the whole aspect of people asking if theater is “a real life thing to do”…It’s a dream of mine, but everyone’s like “Oh, do you have a backup plan? Do you really think that you’re going to make it? Get ready to work as a waitress for the rest of your life.” That’s the downside to it but that doesn’t really faze me.

Q: What is your favorite role that you’ve ever played?

A: All of them have taught me something, so I can’t love one more than another. This wasn’t my favorite role, but the weirdest, coolest role I’ve ever played was Jesus in “Godspell” in fourth grade. It was cool. That was something I’ll never forget, just because you can’t ever forget that you were Jesus. You can’t top that.

Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

A: I see myself hopefully living in the city and having my best friend as my roommate. We would both do theater and we would to auditions together. I just really want to have fun and live with my friends. I want my twenties to be my time, to do me. I’d love to see the world, too. I’ve always wanted to see the Seven Wonders of the World.

Q: What is your favorite song?

A: My favorite song is “Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan.

Q: If you could be anyone in the world, who would you be?

A: I would be someone on Broadway, Olivia Benson from “Law & Order: SVU,” or Maya Angelou.

This or that:

Adam Levine or Ryan Gosling? Ryan Gosling, all the way! Reading or writing? Writing. TV or internet? That’s hard, just because I like reading articles on BuzzFeed and Thought Catalog, and I love Pinterest. But I like TV , too. They’re equal; neither one takes the win. Winter or summer? I’m more of a winter person. Singing or dancing? Singing. The thing is, I like to dance but I don’t dance for real. I dance like stupid dancing, that you dance just with your friends, not like legit dancing. Cookies or chips? Cookies. I want people to know that. You can tell a lot about a person if they prefer cookies or chips.
