In school, I am enrolled in two AP and two honors classes and have received straight A's. I am also involved in two college bound programs (NJLEEP and Pathways to College) as well as a musical honor society, Tri-M. While working hard to uphold my academic integrity, I entered contests to try and pay for some of the NYU summer program. These include a Shout Down Drugs competition to create an original song, and a Scholar Voices competition to become a published writer. I have done all I can to make my dream a reality, but your help is needed to make my dream come true.
Music has impacted my life in various ways. Playing piano for local churches and playing drums for Arts High School's gospel choir have instilled in me a love and passion for music. Despite being born with inner ear hearing loss in both ears, this life-long passion has evolved into a love for music production. I have been able to use my gift to produce and engineer my school's first student-created school anthem, "Green and Gray."
I desire to grow in my talents by attending this noteable summer program, and your giving will help me lay another brick on my road to success. Thank you so much!
