I'm currently a medical student that was also born in the music homeland of Nashville, Tennessee. I've grown up with 6 brothers and sisters that always are playing music wherever we go--whether it's washing the dishes, in the car, or even the occasional concert at our local theater or town fair. But it's always been a challenge to hold onto music as I've been growing up and becoming steadily more and more busy the closer I get to finishing my training. But even still, I feel that music is a part of me because it allows me to express myself in ways that no other form of communication can offer. Life is full of hardships and struggles, with joy and happiness and a lot of other emotions mixed in. And it's through music that I hope to connect myself with the rest of the world.
