Any concerts I have played, both ensemble and solo, will always be experiences I will remember as I continue towards the end of my degree program at Austin Peay.
I want to encourage others to excel, that come from other countries and believe that learning and the curriculum at Austin Peay is difficult. They can do it and it can be done.
Everything about my story is tied to music: it’s my passion, it’s my love, it’s going to be my job — It’s everything to me.
Without Austin Peay's programs, I wouldn't have found my passion for teaching children, or seen the joy a child experiences when they learn how to sing or play an instrument.
