Still hard to believe I’m a Master’s graduate now! It has been a magical journey right from my auditions to admission to my arrival in Glasgow and my growth from then on! Very very grateful to God and my friends and family to support me through it all! Thank you RCS for believing in me and providing me with a platform to grow as a professional musician! I will cherish these memories forever!
