Krystel Brenes Guzmán
My name is Krystel Brenes Guzmán. I am 10 years old. I am from Costa Rica. Every day, whenever I have the opportunity, I hit any surface with my hands, imagining that it is one of the drums that I have seen in videos and photographs.
One of my teachers at school once gave me a percussion test after I wouldn’t let him create beats in his own class. With the test results the teacher suggested to my parents that I could take drum lessons.
It was 8 months ago that I had the opportunity to play drums for the first time. That was incredible, much more than I ever dreamed of. Since then, playing the drums is my daily passion, the one that makes me work to be a professional drummer, play music all over the world and keep meeting people like the ones I have had the opportunity to meet in this short time.
When I grow up I want to inspire boys and girls to fulfill any of their dreams, and always bring a positive message to the world with my drums. Let’s stay united on this path, a hug from the heart 💜
