I am Evans Scholar. I feel very fortunate to have received this scholarship and to be able to attend Marquette University. Without this scholarship, I probably would have to go to community college. I will never forget all of the people who have made my education a possibility.
In addition to guitar I also play the drums. When I was in high school I would have about an hour every day after I would come home from school when no one would be home. In this time I would put on my headphones and pound on my drum set until someone got home.
I have been playing music since I was in 3rd grade. I started playing guitar in the 7th grade and it has become my number one hobby ever since. I look forward to continuing to get better. I would love to be able to perform live for people someday.
I am from the south side of Chicago. This is representative of my home. I will always consider Chicago my home. I would love to move downtown after school. Living in the city is something that I have always found appealing.
I have seen this band live twice. They are incredible musicians. Later in the semester I will be seeing them play at the United Center in Chicago. I love their bluesy sound and am very happy that they have seen success after being a group
