I'm a 14 year old who loves music and being part of a band. I've really found myself and a great group of friends through music, and would encourage anyone to give it a try. At first, I could barely keep a beat, but now I help lead a band of great musicians. Being a percussionist has been life-changing for me and has allowed me to participate in so many experiences I would have never had before. As a shy person, I could never have dreamed that I would be able to perform in front of hundreds of people who are all dancing and sharing in the fun. My bandmates - also seen in my video - are my best friends who would do anything for me and I would do anything for them - I love them all!!! I'm entering this contest to show others like me that it's okay to get a little crazy and rock out with your friends!
