My name is Julissa Fano, and I am a musician from Lima, Peru. When I was 13, I decided that I wanted to be a musician and spend my life doing what I love; playing drums. I am currently 3 subjects away from graduating with a Bachelor degree in music specializing in drumming. I am already working as a drummer for up and coming artists on the Peruvian music scene. I see this contest as a way to continue my learning, and to connect with like-minded aspiring drummers around the world. I am thrilled to participate in a space that encourages female empowerment through drumming.
