As you may or may not know, the ability to travel to sing for various conductors and directors is essential in the beginning of a singer’s career. If no one hears me sing, in other words, it is virtually impossible to begin singing professionally! My worry has been mainly financial in the last few months, as I am entering the last year of my schooling, and soon I will be ready to embark on the professional journey I have been preparing for.

Recently, I was awarded two major grants and scholarships which I would like to share with you, both as a thank-you to these funding bodies as well as to invite you to celebrate with me! McGill University music faculty awarded me the highest possible scholarship of $10,000 (Schulich Scholarship) to cover all fees and tuition for my degree this year. Today, I found out that the Manitoba Arts Council has awarded me a $3000 grant. This will make it possible for me to sing for conductors and directors across Canada, the US and Europe, and will give a kick start to my journey as a professional singer.

I would like to thank each and every one of you, as you have all touched my life in one way or another and have inspired me to continue even when I have had my doubts.
