“Sophomore year, I decided to take voice lessons to improve for choir. My voice teacher said that my voice was dramatic and classical and vibrato came easily to me. Since then, I started to learn opera and have fallen in love with the style of music. I love opera because the sound is warm and the music is dramatic. If you want to perform, don’t compare your voice to other people. Get used to how your unique voice sounds as you are. Be okay with your unique voice and personality.”
