Henyesi was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States when she was 5 years old. She is from Manhattan where she lives with her mother, father and 3 brothers – 12 years old and 8 year old twins. She said she always wanted a sister and now, in the ABC house, it feels like she has 7! Henyesi says that one of the only hard parts about moving to Darien is falling asleep because it is too quiet.
A sophomore at DHS, she loves sciences and is currently taking AP Chemistry. Long-term Henyesi is interested in medicine, particularly Neurology, which she said was inspired both by Grey’s Anatomy and by her mother’s one-time dream of being a neurosurgeon.
She also loves to dance. She used to take ballet, tap and jazz classes and is now taking hip hop at the Darien Arts Center. In addition, she volunteers at Person to Person, is on the cheerleading squad and would like to audition for the musical.
