Vote for Laura: 8

If I could earn a living doing whatever I pleased, I would be a musician. I am very musically talented and can play a variety of instruments. If I ever had the chance to fulfill this dream, my first priority would be to make sure my family was well taken care of. They have struggled through a lot and they deserve a break. I would enjoy traveling the world and all the amazing sights I would see and people I would meet. I would donate to different research foundations and charities because my family has been associated with a few. I would like to repay the foundations for their help with the people I care about. I probably wouldn’t spend much money on myself because I’ve always been a giving person and I view my friends and family’s needs as more important than mine.
Given the chance to be a professional musician, I wouldn’t care what type of music I played. If I was part of an orchestra, I could play the flute, bells, or xylophone. If I was part of a band, I would most likely play the drums. I can play guitar and piano, but because I have short fingers, I am limited to the notes that I can play on either one. Country music is my passion, but I would enjoy the chance to play the drums for a rock song. The double bass pedal seems to be a cool experience I would like to try out.
