Get to know me a bit…


My name is Elliot Vidalon, I’m a freshmen in city tech, for those who don’t know. During my break, I like watching anime and I do draw them whenever I like. I’m also very interested of the Japanese culture and funny thing is I kind of learn some Japanese words from watching anime but the interesting part is my ancestors are actually Japanese because my mid-name “Wuatanave(Watanabe)” is related to a Japanese name coming from my fathers name. Beside of drawing anime and others, I also like music and whenever I like a song and want to play it, I have a piano to practice with and using only my ears to find the right note of each part of the music. I don’t only play piano but guitar as well and I’m still kind of learning. Since I’ve master my piano skills, I have the advantage to play other instruments and therefore I chose the guitar.
