Music has always been such a big part of who I am. Before I started working for Blue Windows I was considering a career in classical singing. I was just supposed to take a small break before heading to graduate school…never happened. Although I never pursued a career in singing I will never regret the time spent investing in music. I started when I was in 7th grade and continued until I received my degree in music from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1999. This month I chose to donate to music programs in our local schools. More specifically, Rogers middle school and Stanford middle school (where I first began). I wonder sometimes what my life would have been like if I hadn’t had music in my life at such an early age. Music is an escape for so many young people and can contribute to building confidence in who they are. I hope that schools never take away this opportunity for young students and that’s why I am choosing to support them in any way I can. I think out of all the charities and organizations I have chosen or will choose this one is the most personal to me and my life.
