Bachelor of Music in Choral Music Education; Japanese Minor

How did you become interested in music? 
I have always had an interest in music. I’ve been in choir for 11 years, starting in 4th grade. I have the privilege of going to a fine arts middle/high school where I was a vocal major! I always knew music was something I wanted to pursue, so when I transferred to UNC Charlotte, I decided to become a music major!

What kind of career do you hope to have?
I want to teach high school choir, but my end goal is to get my master's/doctorate and conduct at the collegiate level!

What is your favorite thing about UNC Charlotte, the College of Arts + Architecture, or the Department of Music? 
I LOVE the community we have built. Everyone is so supportive of one another and we have an amazing music program with the best faculty!

Do you participate in any community activities or work in the Charlotte arts community? 
I am always traveling around Charlotte to watch different performances.

When you are not in class, studying, or working, what do you like to do for fun?
I am always watching some kind of performance. Whether it’s in Charlotte or four hours away in Georgia. I am constantly traveling to support the arts in any way I can. I also really love watching anime and studying Japanese culture!
