She’s had the opportunity to share the same platform with many local and national artists such as Kierra Sheard, MaryMary and Chrystal Rucker. At an early age, she developed a passion for music, arranging and song writing and began to play the piano at the age of 5. She has given back to the Bay Area continuously through her gift and plans to do so as long as she is able. She graduated in the spring 2012 with an Associate of Arts degree in Music.
