Growing up low income and nomadic has changed how I have viewed life and my appreciation of the smaller things. Having to decide what my family and I could live without has always been a struggle, but through it all, music has always been something that has been a light on a dark and dismal day. Challenges have always found a way to form who people are truly supposed to be, and to put them on the path to greatness. I’ve always been college bound and I believe college will give me the chance to make something extraordinary out of myself. It will also give others the chance to grow on my passion, forming their own path to greatness. Music has always been my path. Yes, my family may not be able to afford that new phone or another gallon of milk, but I know I can always cheer myself up by singing the newest hit on the radio with my family or harmonizing with the amazing people in my choir. And no amount of money can buy that.
. There is always more to learn and will always be more to teach, but leading others into something so beautiful is what I strive for in the future.
Becoming a choir director is my biggest dream and going to college will help me acquire the skills and degrees needed to pursue that dream. .
In five years I’m going to be a graduate of college and teaching young mischievous minds the beauty of music and singing can bring. Music has always been a path to better places for me and to be able to give that to someone else has always been my goal.
This is what I will be doing everyday, in college and beyond.
