My musical journey began 3 years ago, when I came to the UK. I was so excited to go to a new school and when I got my first violin I was amazed. At first I was terrified as all my classmates had already played violin for one year. This pushed me to work hard and try to be as good as my friends. It started off with school ensemble and got to the point where I am now, the MiSST orchestra; the most amazing group of young people anybody could be. I have taken part in many unforgettable events, including the most incredible concert last April (5th anniversary). I am so grateful to be involved in this programme and I would recommend it to every young musician.
