Hello, I am Aryssa. I am 7 years old from Melbourne, Australia. I have been drumming since I was 5 years old. I choose drums because I like the cymbals and the loud sounds that they make. Drumming makes me feel happy, excited and energetic. My goal is to have my own band one day and become a professional drummer. I decided to play It’s My Life by Jon Bon Jovi for my HLAG contest entry because it is one of my favourite songs and it makes me feel powerful. My favourite HLAG Hero is Allegra Care. I hope I can inspire other young girls to take up drumming, especially in Australia, just like how Allegra has inspired me.
Apart from drumming, I also love boxing and swimming.
Saving and caring for animals is how I make an impact to the environment. I love animals and always try to help as many animals as possible. I understand that animal lives are as important as ours. From a very young age I have helped injured and lost animals and cared for them including native birds. Being in Australia, I believe protecting the native wildlife is important to preserve various species from extinction for the future generations. My ambition is to be a vet one day, a vet who drums!
