What does Berklee City Music mean to you and what are your goals at 5-week?

Berklee City Music means a lot to me right now. I honestly don’t know what I’d be doing this summer if it wasn’t for this program. My goals at 5- week are growing, focusing, and preserving through my music.

What is it about music that makes you want to be a musician and pursue it as a career?

It is the connection about music that makes me want to be a musician. It is amazing how you could be feeling a certain way and someone may not relate but a song can.

Who’s had the greatest influence on your life and why?

I want to say church has had the greatest influence on me because it has inspired me to go through with my music.

Outside of music what are your interests and hobbies?

Outside of music, I still relate artistically with photography, creative writing, poetry, and my youth group.
