I have been drawn to music since the day I was born. It has always been my dream to learn to play an instrument and now that dream has came true. I started playing the cello about 6 years ago and it has really been a blessing. I have faced a lot of obstacles that I never knew I could get through. I was abused when I was a child and I do not have good memories of my childhood. In fact, the abuse caused a lot of problems with my social life while in junior high and some of high school. I was very shy and I was almost always upset and depressed. That all changed when I learned to play the cello. When I play, it is like my own therapy session and I am happy again. It is my dream to help others who have been through similar situations to cope with adversity through music. I am going to school this fall to have my dream come true and to become a music therapist.
