Hi! I am Isla, I am 10 years old and I love drumming! I started drumming at 8 years old when I joined my older brother's percussion group. There were lots of boys in the group but that didn't matter.
My favorite bands are Nirvana, Kurt Vile, and Tom Petty. My heroes are Jane Goodall, John Lewis, and Greta Thunberg. They all fought for things that are very important to me.
I wrote an essay bringing attention to the problem of gender pay inequality. Women who enter the workforce in jobs that are mostly considered male jobs have to break barriers, just like in my drum group of mostly boys I am breaking barriers!
