I have found enormous amounts of gratification in this world. I have enjoyed living my life with an interest to learn about people, places, things, and ideas. I am, among my friends, the one who asks questions, and who is most curious about everything and everyone. I have learned to not be ashamed or afraid to ask a question, even if it is embarrassing. I think this is why I enjoy pursuing an education in music. It is so vibrant with history and culture. It is infinite in genre, happenings, and possibilities. Music guarantees I will be a lifelong student, a strict and continuous goal I have for myself. I wish to live my life learning about anything and everything. All day EVERYDAY.
