Vaid is not sure about a summer tour.”No one has told me anything yet,” she said. “There are always surprises though.”
Another thing she is going to stick to is her studies. The Massachusetts-born artist is currently planning on transferring to the College of Holy Cross to continue the pursuit of a degree in biology.
“I definitely will at some point finish my degree,” she said. “I think for right now I am going to focus on music. This whole experience has really opened my mind up to the idea of doing this professionally.”
Vaid, the eldest of six children, was always a bit shy and “felt invisible” in school. Before Idol, she didn’t perform much outside of high school performances. “When I would sing for the high school it was very quick and I didn’t really focus on performing more,” she said. “Prior to all of this I would just sing chorus and music once a year in school.”
And although Vaid is sad to leave the show and the “amazing people” she met on her journey, she is still rooting for her friends in the top four. “All four of them really deserve to be there and they are all so talented,” she said. “I wish them the best.”
