Why Do You Want to Pursue this Career?
I pursue this career because it is a passion of mine, and with all the hardship that happened in my life I could always turn to music. I am apart of Studio G on Main Street, a performing studio. I have been going there for about a year now. I am apart of the High Heels and Sneakers Choir there, I have private classes every Wednesday, including the Choir (and THRILLER), and rehearsals before every Showcase (Student Revue Show), Choir, and whatever Show is coming up or a big event is coming up. I have been singing and into musical things for as long as I remember, not to mention it helps built up stage presence, confidence, and it helps relieve stress.
