After finding out that my college selection was not the right fit for me, I have been working on an R&B album since August of 2008. Although it is not a paying job, I feel I have learned so much through making this CD. It has taught me patience, networking skills, recording skills, determination, and I feel it has really added spunk to my personality and the stories I can tell. I am very proud of my music and it makes me happy everyday.
