What has been your favorite part of your internship so far? Why?
“[Prior to starting my internship, I was] looking forward to seeing the workings of Music for All and how they expand their reach to support music education on a large, nationwide scale. It’s amazing to see everyone come together and make life-changing experiences for students and directors!

Joining the team in-person for the Summer Symposium has been my favorite! I love working with all of the staff and seeing how the organization operates behind the scenes. Everyone has been so nice, helpful, and supportive!

How do you like to spend your time outside of work and music?
I enjoy spending time playing sports and games with friends. I enjoy being outside hiking, paddleboarding, and exercising. I also volunteer frequently.

What is something you hope to accomplish or become during your life?
“I hope to establish my own music education program for students with special needs.”
