“I have three passions: music, math, and teaching. I am very fortunate that my career is involved with two of my passions, which is teaching math. Due to my new career and the amount of time I need to put into it, I have little to no connection to my third passion: music.

In 2017, I came across Southern California Marimba, an organization that supports marimba education to the youth. The SCM staff works hard with no pay but full of passion to provide concerts, clinics, masterclasses, and competitions promoting music to the underprivileged, exposing them to professional musicians. I decided to join them, and through that, fulfill my third passion.”
