What a wild ride! After four years of hard work, Sleepless nights, four consecutive years on the Dean’s List and nine scholarships, I have graduated from the Bachelor of Music Program with high distinction, and was awarded the Senate appointed University Medal for achieving the highest standing within my degree. Time sure flies! I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported me over the years and made it possible for me to pursue a full-time academic career, while maintaining my career as a full-time touring musician. Thank you, to my Amazing family and friends, for your love and dedication. Thank you to my classmates for your brilliance that constantly inspired and challenged me. A sincere Thank you to all the Teachers, Professors, and Mentors in my life, that have shown me the way. You have given me the tools I need for success, and I will use for them for the rest of my life. Thank you to my amazingly talented, beautiful, Goddess friends & study buddies Joanna Wahl, and Beatrix Wong for all the late nights, early mornings, cram sessions, cram months, crazy support (like making notes for me when I was out of the country performing), and good times. I don’t know what I would have done without you! I will miss our face to face daily interactions tremendously. One thing I won’t miss though: the daily 3-hour bus commute!
