Ava Swiss’ story: ‘It feels surreal’
Ava Swiss’ first audition earned her a “yes” vote from all four of the show’s judges.
She said the experience feels amazing and surreal.
“I’m so happy that I have another opportunity to just share my story and to hopefully touch others, and heal others with my voice,” Swiss said.
Swiss is a graduate of Oxford High School. On Nov. 30, 2021, a gunman opened fire inside the high school injuring seven people and killing four students. Swiss said she is grateful for the community’s support.
“There’s nothing like our town, Oxford. The amount of love and support and everything, it’s overwhelming in the best way possible,” Swiss said.
