Musical Performer
As a recent graduate of North Rockland High School, New York, Daniel Baluch has been in Best Buddies since his freshman year of High School, and played a significant role in transforming the club into the powerhouse that it is at our high school today!

Starting in his sophomore year, Daniel and his fellow chapter members have made rap-music videos for our #RWordStomp campaign. Last summer, the #RWordStomp2017 video was featured as part of the closing ceremony of #BBLC2017! It was truly a surreal moment, one that inspired all of the NRHS seniors to create one last music video to go out with a bang. Hence, #RWordStomp2018 was born.

This fall Daniel will be attending Seton Hall University as a Diplomacy/International Relations major and plans to start his own Best Buddies Chapter on campus! Although he has been in Best Buddies throughout his high school career, he feels as if this is only the beginning.
