YOLA at HOLA musician Devin Aguilar has been attending HOLA since 1st Grade. When he first started in the program, he played the viola. But after his first year, he transitioned to the cello. Although he didn’t pick the cello, he loves playing it and hopes to continue through high school.
Devin’s favorite thing about coming to HOLA is learning new pieces of music and making new friends. Besides playing music, Devin is also involved with YOLA at HOLA’s leadership program. Through this program, the students help plan special events, learn how to conduct site tours for special visitors and how best to help new students assimilate into the program. The students are currently working on a skit to teach new students what to do and what not to do at HOLA and to show them the consequences of behaving inappropriately.
While he loves playing music, Devin hopes to someday become a police officer.
