"I want to take my involvement with music and turn it in to a career that is creative, demanding and rewarding.

"I plan on continuing to play the violin throughout my entire life. In addition, I plan to teach my own children the skills and lessons I learned through music. While practicing isn’t always fun, it always feels great knowing what you have accomplished.

"Playing the violin takes a lot of hard work, but I enjoy the time I put into it. Music will continue to enrich my life because it proves to me that I can accomplish anything if I set my mind to it."
