By the time I joined GLONEVA, I had lost hope in my studies. But guess what? In that same year, I was able to join Brass for Africa through GLONEVA. All I can say is that since I joined Brass for Africa, my life has been changing. When I first joined GLONEVA I was shy and could not stand up in an audience to speak up. But through the music and life-skills, we learn from Brass for Africa, I am now the most known confident girl at GLONEVA and in my community at large. I was also able to learn how to communicate with people and develop my leadership skills, and as a result, I was chosen to be my band’s team leader and spokesperson.
When I finished my O- level, I got an opportunity through the support of Brass for Africa to study at the Africa Institute of Music (AIM). AIM wanted two people who could play the French horns in their orchestra and through Brass for Africa, I and my friend Mathias were chosen to go through the interviews, which we passed, and we were given full music scholarships. I started on the certificate, finished the course, and have now graduated. Right now, I am looking forward to pursuing my diploma in music and I am majoring in Piano.
