When I first applied for colleges while I was still in high school, I had gotten accepted to West Point and later rejected due to asthma. This was also the case with both the Army and Marine full ride ROTC scholarships I had received.
I thus began college expecting to finish my Mechanical Engineering degree, pursue graduate school, and work in the field of alternate fuel technology. However, some very important changes occurred upon attending: I found the person I truly am. By reaching for my dreams I played in various semi-professional ensembles in Portland and soon pursued a music career. I have now been accepted to Berklee College of Music which only motivates me further. While this experience has been interesting at the very least, it has given me a wide variety of skills and patience to teach those skills to others which I have enjoyed doing for many of my friends and peers.
Now that I have just moved to Boston, I am in search of various jobs (be it teaching, playing music, or working at a local store) to pay for rent and meet new people. Whenever I teach others, I have found the experience to be extremely rewarding, and I look forward to being able to share my experiences with you and help you learn as I am sure I will.
