New York, New York, My American Dream

I was born & raised in Brazil, where I received my degree in Music Education. Now, however, I’m a junior at Georgia State University’s school of music, in Atlanta. NYC and Broadway is what drew me to this country over many other destinations, as I always dreamt to see my name on those shiny marquees of old theaters. I’m a jazz & bossa nova singer, but I’m now being classically trained. I am planning a summer semester in the Big Apple, where I can have intensive musical theater training. Sadly, this isn’t an option in the South. Katheryn Hartgrove, my voice professor, has recommended me to musical theater professors in NYC, but I cannot afford to spend a semester abroad. That said, if I win the contest, I will use the money to fund the summer semester of 2018 studying musical theater in NYC. Studying in NYC will help me to become a skilled music teacher, better to deal with the diversity that meets in the music room, improve my singing and acting, and finally, bring me closer to my American dream.
