• Please begin by telling us anything you would like to about yourself. Age, place of birth, residence, etc.
I'm 18 years old, I live in Minnesota and because there's some confusion about this, I will let you know that I am a girl! LOL
I have been homeschooled my whole life, but I do take an orchestra class at the local high school. I am also in my second year of PSEO classes from Northwestern College. If you don't know what PSEO is, it stands for Post Secondary Enrollment Options. It's an option we have in Minnesota for high school students to take college classes for free. It's a very nice option!

• What made you decide to play the violin?
I heard violin music on the radio once and thought it was the best thing in the world. I decided that I had to learn how to play the violin. I actually felt like God was calling me to play violin. 🙂

• How long have you been playing the violin?
The 4 year anniversary is on April 14th. 🙂

I do own a harmonica too, but I can’t play it to save my life. People say violin is hard? Try playing a harmonica!!

Yep! My friend plays harmonica! I just wonder how does she do it! duncecap It's a really difficult instrument!

i love these.  It is great to see how others tick.  To see a young woman this excited about playing is quite inspirational.

Woo Woo! Go Eagles!

Thanks for sharing your story!  It's fun to hear how people become drawn to playing, it's awesome that you heard God shouting so loud!  Kevin Olusola from Pentatonix has an awesome story about being called to music.  I'm sure your playing will be a powerful tool for His work!

Nice to meet you!  Great interview! 

Yeah, harmonica.  One of the assorted instruments I've never had much luck learning how to play, either.  LOL

I have to say that I found one of your interview answers particularly delightful.. 

• What is your favorite piece of music? Why?
I have to pick a favorite piece of music?! Can’t they all be my favorite?

Absolutely great!
