Music has always been an integral part of my life, specifically in playing the piano for my church. Since the age of 12, I have been honored to serve and volunteer at my church as its official pianist/accompanist. This has influenced me to be an advocate in preserving the beauty of hymns, as they play a significant role in the history of sacred music. My goal in college is to pursue a degree in Music in Worship so that I may continue to serve churches and cater to their music programs. With my decision to pursue a career in music, I have come to a conclusion that my future will be black and white.

A black and white future immediately entails one that is unsure and mysterious. For me, it is just the opposite. Black and white represents the keys of a piano caressed by my fingers each day. These are the colors of my future. Through my career in music, I hope to share a newfound appreciation for the archaic styles of music found in hymns. As the world of music continues to progress, I not only hope to be educated on its innovative musical styles, but to bring a sense of nostalgia in past works that have ultimately led us to the defining music of today.
