“I’ve always loved performing. Being on stage is like my second home. When I wasn’t able to do it anymore, I felt like something was missing, and I lost myself in this world. I tried to find something else in its place, hence my studies in fashion and business, but nothing brought me joy or passion as much as music did. Most of my performing days were when I was a teenager, and ever since graduating high school back in 2011, my parents told me I had to study in post-secondary school for something else as a ‘back-up plan’. They were worried music was not going to sustain my future. It took me about seven years of post-secondary school to realize that music is the only path for me. Once I graduated from my program in early 2020, I told my family that I must pursue music as my full-time career.

I am lost without music and need to find myself again. 'It’s now or never', I said to myself. So here I am now.”

She has also developed a formal marketing plan and performed her original music multiple times per week on the OMCI Emerging Artist Online Livestreams.
