My goal is to live in Tokyo and to work at a local hospital curing people with illness through music therapy. I can’t imagine a life without my violin! On weekends I will sell my artwork in a marketplace and each month I will travel to a foreign destination and write documentaries for a travel journal. If for some reason none of that eventuates, at the very least I hope to never stop dreaming!
Ormiston has allowed my whole family to make friends and I have been accepted for just being me. If I have learnt anything about myself during my time here, it is that I belong.
