What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? Growing up, I didn’t have a typical childhood and was a very quiet child. At a young age, I found music and songwriting as an outlet to express my feelings and it was very therapeutic. I know how healing music can be for people and that’s why I wanted to volunteer with MOC and provide music to people who need it the most. Through MOC, I was able to find my mission as an artist and songwriter, which is to create and share music that can help people in some way.
