For two years, Talene has been the president of the co ed a Cappella group on campus, the Seahawkappellas. Singing is one of Talene's greatest passions and has been throughout her life. When she’s not running from rehearsal to rehearsal, Talene likes to spend her time playing with her 10 year old golden retriever, Sunni. They like to take walks to watch the sunrise on the beach, and visit the dog park. After graduating, Talene plans to move back home to Philadelphia to be with her family.
