All my life every time the New Year comes around I always hear the same dream from my mom. Her dream is to go and see the New Year's Rose Bowl Parade in person. Not only would this be a lifetime opportunity for her to see the parade but to also have one of her own kids march. I received the opportunity to audition with the slim chance of being accepted into the Bands of America Honors Band last year. Getting accepted in this band made me realize that I could fulfill my mother's dream. I was originally accepted to march in the 2021 parade but due to Covid-19 my chance this year was squashed but I was able to perform virtually. These funds will be used to pay for the cost of the trip, hotel, and membership. I hope to start this new year with all the help I can get to make my mom's dream come true and to march in the 2022 Rose Bowl Parade!
