Traveling with and as and Arkansas Ambassador of Music was truly the adventure of a lifetime. I was able to showcase my passion for music with a wonderful group of people with the same interest. We traveled through Europe for two weeks performing for the public and sharing our music with them in hopes of bringing entertainment and joy. We also grew quite a bit as musicians. I made lots of friends as well who I am still in contact with. Not only did we grow as musicians but also as people. I embarked on the journey nervous, shy, and not knowing anyone and came back home saddened from leaving my newfound companions. My confidence both as a musician and a person was boosted and I am so incredibly grateful for all of those who helped to give me this trip of a lifetime.
