“I have had many opportunities already, and I just finished my freshman year! I was honored to perform four times this past semester at UTM, twice in our ensemble performances, once for the chancellor's breakfast, and once more for the annual night of dance. UTM is a wonderful place for opportunities to perform and share my love for the arts! ”
