When asked what DYAO has meant to her, she answered: "DYAO he meant so much to me. I have been a part of this amazing organization for about four years, and I can not express enough my gratitude for all of the opportunities that the staff and donors that DYAO has brought. I have grown so much as a musician and as a person. During my years in this orchestra, I have made so many unforgettable memories and many relationships along the way that I will cherish forever. It has been a sincerely phenomenal experience."
