My name is Catherine Zickert. I am a Junior at the University of Kentucky majoring in classical voice performance, specifically, Opera, with a possible double major in Italian. I love having fun with my family and friends, traveling. In fact, I have spent this past semester and summer abroad in Italy! There, I continued my music studies along with participating in a summer program called OperaLucca. I am an only child and was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I have a dog named Dreamer and a cat named SweetCheeks. I used to play many sports such as soccer, basketball, track, and volleyball. However, the only sport I still manage to have time for is skiing and snowboarding. My long-term goal is two- fold: To be a professional singer and to bring joy to others through the sharing of my gifts. My faith is also extremely important to me.
