Hope For the Future
“I was always trying to figure out what aspect of the music industry I could see myself working in for the rest of my life, and I think I finally recognized that music publishing is a great fit.”
Why She is Grateful
“I know that the music industry is one of the hardest, if not the hardest, career paths to land a job in, but I feel overly prepared and am eager to start looking. I feel very lucky to be at a school where I can learn so much about the field I’d like to progress in. I truly loved the experience.”
