2018-2019 Mr. Cardinal Contestant 8: Daniel Cadenas

What has been your best high school experience so far? 

My best high school experience so far would be hanging with my friends, receiving new music, and just meeting new people… And just being encouraged to do stuff like the talent show and all that.

What is your vision for SBHS’s future? 

My vision of SBHS would be becoming a better school, since we’re getting good things in life and right here in school as well. I think everything will continue to get  better and cleaner, especially with the way the principal is making the staff work in here and how she’s making it safer for the students. 

What is something people don’t know about you? 

I really don’t know… everybody knows what I do, like, listen to music, play some music, draw something. I’m just a normal dude.

Well, what do you like to draw? 

I like to just draw random things. I like to draw things from like Pop Culture, like geek or nerd…I just do whatever…after that I just draw whatever comes to mind.

What is your hidden talent? 

It sounds really dumb, but it’s funny…I think it’s like, memorizing all the Hamilton lyrics.

What are your favorite songs and why are they meaningful to you? 

My first songs would be “All About A Girl” by Nirvana and then “One Million Lovers” by The Growlers. “All About A Girl,” I love it because, like the title says, it’s all about a girl and it’s basically Kurt Cobain expressing his feelings towards his girlfriend and that’s what I would sing for mine. And “One Million Lovers” because, to me, it’s like, making the world a bit more peaceful.

Why did you join Mr. Cardinal? 

I joined Mr. Cardinal because I know it will help me with a lot of things in the future. Joining gave me community service opportunities as well as opportunities to get to know more people so I won’t suffer from social anxiety. It also gives me something to keep up with.

What hobbies are you currently into? 

The hobbies I’m currently into are playing my instruments, playing games, like I said, drawing, and that’s it.

What instruments do you play? 

I can play the guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, ocarina, and the harmonica. I think that’s about it.

What are some songs you can play? 

It’ll just be whatever comes into my head. I’ll always just switch every weekend or month. So, right now would be like, “Dazed and Confused” by Led Zeppelin. I already know half of the solo, so it’s coming out pretty cool.

Is there anything else I didn’t ask you, but should have? 

No, not really. You did a pretty good job.

Come out and watch Daniel compete for the crown of Mr. Cardinal on April 7th at the Sturges Center! Doors open at 5 pm and the show begins at 6 pm!
