MMA, Yale School of Music, Connecticut, USA

Coming from an area with few resources for the arts, a career in opera could easily have been considered an impossible feat.

Thanks to the generosity of The Cross Trust I have not had to limit my ambitions due to financial hardships, and have been studying for a Master of Musical Arts at the Yale School of Music.

Because of this I have been a Metropolitan Opera National Council Award District Winner, have summer employment with an opera festival, and kickstarted an international career as an operatic soprano.
