Emily Hopper

I’ve always wanted to be a writer… and traveler. I received a bachelors degree for marketing in college and so my first couple of jobs out of college was in media advertising agency and a marketing department. I was working in the marketing department of a cannabis company in Boulder, Colorado when COVID hit. The CEO, likely in the panic and chaos of it all (and also well-suited to the cannabis industry), decided to fire the entire marketing team. I never really loved marketing, so for me, this felt like the push I needed to really become who I wanted to be.  Read more>>

Britney Ledesma

I started stand up comedy almost 3 years ago. I had done stand up about 1 year when the pandemic hit and decided to start the first comedy open mic during it. I am nowhere near where I want to be, but I am working hard to get there! Beginning of 2021 a lot of stand up started moving here. I am very thankful for that because a lot of the opportunities I have gotten wouldn’t have happened with out it. Read more>>

Eli Arbor

I guess I don’t know exactly where to start. I haven’t always had musical aspirations. I’m originally from Rochester NY. something something something…born, something something something graduated from high school. If you don’t know Rochester it’s hard to explain. It’s a small city, but it’s full of fighters. The problem is it’s forgotten. Why stop look for us when Cleveland, NYC and Toronto are all essentially equidistant; but there’s so much talent there that gets overlooked just because it’s not a big city. That talent though, it’s not just artistic; brilliant orators, historians, thinkers, engineers, all of that potential, overlooked. That’s where it starts for me, and hopefully, where it ends.This is the backdrop that inspires everything I do. Read more>>

Frank J. Cheff

I was born in Detroit and moved to Montana in my Jr. Year in high school. It made a profound impact on me and saw and did things that made me completely change what I thought, who I thought I was and what I might do in my later years. As a City kid coming to an extremely rural and completely different background gained an appreciation for farm work, farm equipment and the ingenuity of the people that did that work. Not that I was going to be a farmer but the common sense lessons about self reliance and preparing, growing and harvesting had an appeal since it was always different and frequently things went differently then planned.  Read more>>

Sharayah & Ryan Kurowski

Sharayah: Home video was always a huge part of my upbringing. My dad was always breaking out the video camera at family functions and my own parents wedding video is one of my most prized possessions. Movie nights were my parents idea of quality time. I remember being enamored with movies from a very young age, always going to watch the behind the scenes to try to learn what I could about the filmmaking process, but mostly just being captivated by films ability to convey feeling through composition, color, music, acting, lighting, etc.  Read more>>

Michelle Washington

I was born, raised, and educated in Texas (international travel later became a benefit of my fashion industry career). It’s rare, but I’m a Austin native and a graduate of Baylor University. where I earned my Bachelors degree in Fashion Design. Later, I decided to pursue my Masters Degree in Education (Summa Cum Laude). When I started in the fashion industry, there were not very many African-Americans and even fewer magazines showing people of color. Naturally, my family was concerned about how I would make a living in fashion. Here I am 20+ years later… BOOKED and BUSY! I lived in NYC right after my college graduation, I worked for different design labels with the intention of working in fashion as a designer. Read more>>

Iggy Bank

I first discovered the art of drag watching RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2018 with some friends from school. From then on, I was hooked and I could tell that was what I was meant to be doing, so I started doing drag in high school! I just practiced makeup for a while and got into doing full drag when the pandemic started. I didn’t perform in a real, live, in-person drag show until April of 2021 with my drag sisters back home in Laredo, Texas.  Read more>>

Chardae Scott

I first decided to change gears and pivot into entrepreneurship at the start of the Coronavirus Pandemic. I found myself like many, home and unemployed trying to figure out my next move. It was then that I realized that even in the middle of the pandemic, people still wanted to maintain their self care by keeping up with their hair needs… whether it be keeping up with dyeing your roots or men learning how to cut their own hair. Read more>>

Hayley Hudnall

I knew early-on that I wanted to work with animals, but I didn’t know in what capacity. I worked at a vet clinic one summer, then interned at a zoo, and realized neither of those were for me. I decided to major in Wildlife Fisheries at Texas A&M — I wanted to work with animals in their natural environments and make an impact. After I graduated, I interned at a wildlife rehabilitation center and knew it was something I wanted to pursue further. I moved back to Austin and joined the team at Emancipet. I loved the job and their mission, but continued to look for a job working with wildlife.  Read more>>

Jhánneu Roberts

I’m Jhánneu, a Los Angeles and Austin-based sustainability content creator, speaker and expert, who has built a successful lifestyle brand around showing how low waste living can be inclusive and accessible to all. Originally from the South Side of Chicago, I have always wanted to make a difference in communities like mine but didn’t know-how. I graduated with a degree in Theater from Claremont McKenna College in 2016 and found a way to combine my talents and need to make a difference in the world. With over 54k combined social media following I am able to reach those who want to start a low waste lifestyle but don’t know how to start. Read more>>

Kayla Davis

When I was a kid I wanted to be a Nat Geo photographer and travel the world but, as I got older it evolved from taking pictures of lady bugs to taking my friends senior pictures as well as couples. Towards the end of college I decided that if I could jump out of an airplane why couldn’t I start my own business; and from that point on I was determined to try it out and if it did not work out by 30 I would join the corporate ladder and work for someone else. After college I got an internship with a jewelry designer here in Austin and it was my mentorship through Lily Hutchinson that expanded my want to focus solely on products and fashion. Read more>>

Christina Houck

I started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) in 2011 under Rene Nazare-Azevedo. After training for about three years, I was given an opportunity to move halfway around the world to UAE, and teach BJJ to an all girls’ school, Al’Eertqaa girls school. I was there for about 4 years and during that time our school worked hard enough and earned the UAE Jiu-Jitsu World Championship title. After my daughter was born in 2016 I decided to relocate back to the USA so that we could be closer to family. Read more>>

Angela Navarro

I have always had an emotional reaction to color and a keen eye for spatial organization, which manifested on an interest in art, architecture and design. Rather than drawing or painting, my early work was mostly collages that I built from discarded Sunday magazines I collected from my parents. Only when I went to college to study Fine Art at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San Carlos (in Valencia, Spain), I started to really develop a taste for painting. More specifically I started to get into portraits. Read more>>

Vontay Galaxy

Vontay Galaxy was born in Killeen, Texas. As a GenZ / Millennial cusp his musical style is a multifaceted mixture of HipHop, R&B, and new age Pop/Rap. He is greatly impacted by the innovative styles of Childish Gambino and Lil Wayne. As a southern native, Juicy J, and Z-Ro haven been his inspiration for his take on the southern style of Rap. When he gets in his Pop/Rap bag he often channels Lauryn Hill and Jamie Foxx. After relocating to the Austin/San Marcos area Vontay Galaxy began to see his career soar to higher levels. In 2017 he was apart of his first tour “We Are The City Tour.” Inspired by the experience and his passion to help other emerging artists he then put on his own tour “Texas Made Tour” in 2018.

Alexia Leclercq

Growing up, I was always aware of environmental issues from being yelled at for playing in the acid rains to the hurricanes at my grandparent’s house. Yet, at school, environmental issues were glossed over at school and always framed as a future disaster that would mostly impact polar bears. While I care about the cute polar bears as much as the next person, we need to be talking about how communities of color and low-income communities are currently dying due to exposure to toxic chemicals and pollution. I was priviledge to leave Texas and attend New York University where I was able to learn about systemic racism, colonialism, capitalism and bridge my lived experience with radical political theory. Read more>>

Lauryn Evarts

I started The Skinny Confidential when I was in college, broke, bartending & teaching Pure Barre. When I started college I went to join a sorority but the fees were so outrageous, there was no way I was going to pay that. I saw a huge white space online & that’s where the idea to build an online community came from. Women all over the world came together to share their tips & tricks for fitness, beauty, skincare & lifestyle on The Skinny Confidential. It was important that The Skinny Confidential wasn’t about ‘my’ tips- I wanted to know what workouts the girls in Sweden were doing, how the women in France were drinking cocktails, the secret tea that Chinese women swear by. It was and is a place where like-minded women can come together, find value, & connect. Read more>>

Jessica Thompson

About five years ago I discovered a new genre of book that I had not known existed – culinary cozy mysteries. I had toyed with writing a recipe book for a while and have always loved mysteries, so I immediately felt at home. But when I started reading the first book I found, it was terrible! It was predictable, formulaic, and bland. What sent me over the edge was the writing. Finally, the line “it looked like the ongoing feud was still going on” made me throw down the book and start writing. Read more>>

Alden Schaub

I played on a team in a weekly trivia game in Northern Michigan. After a while I became a regular player and came to know the host. One of the other hosts quit and the company was looking to hire a new host. I had never considered hosting trivia but the host said he thought I would be a good fit as I liked to crack jokes. He also told me they liked to hire players because they were familiar with the format. Read more>>

Carolyn Black-Coffey

I became a mobile cat groomer, almost on accident. I was working in a vet clinic near Fort Worth, working towards becoming a vet tech when my grandmother living in New Braunfels started becoming ill. It became clear that she needed more care, but not enough that she couldn’t live on her own. She just needed more help around the house and driving and such. So I moved to the New Braunfels area, because I was the least busy member of the family, and I wanted to spend more time with her before my -her- time ran out. Read more>>

Superman McCoy

My life had drastically changed on December 10,2016. I was attacked by two men, it was a horrific hate crime. My name is Superman and I am a Transman whom was attacked for being trans. When I awoke from a 8 day comma I had to relearn everything which took some time. I have sustained multiple Traumatic Brain Injuries, my body being crush, PTSD and so much more. Through it all I have continue to tell anyone I meet that I have hope faith and love that it will all work out. I created BDB apparel out of the travesty. BDB stands for Beast Dont Break! If I have learned anything it’s that the human mind is resilient beyond belief. Read more>>

Morgan Mars

I went to school for fashion merchandising and marketing. While working in trend forecasting in los Angeles I started realizing how wasteful the fashion industry was and wanted to figure out a way to bring sustainability into the fashion world. I went to visit my grandpa in Texas who was already running a estate sale company and he offered me a opportunity to come help him run his company because he needed help with social media and building a online brand, I took the opportunity and relocated to Texas. As I was working estate sales I started collecting vintage jewelry and accessories from each sale until i had enough inventory to start my own brand. from there I started doing local pop ups and trade shows around Texas to grow a local following.

I think this is one of the hardest part , lol, because it’s hard to walk you through my story as my story is like a very fruitful Tree with several branches that bore as much fruit in each of this branches, but I’ll give a piece from my time in the states. I was born in Nigeria to a family of six (6). I’m the first child which means so many responsibilities. I’ve been striving for success since nursery school up till this day. I started making music while in college in Nigeria, I used to have Whassap rap battles with several rappers then. We’ll have a group chat that was popular in college then. Read more>>

Steve Teng

I’m a first-generation Taiwanese immigrant. My family immigrated to Fort Worth, TX when I was six and since six-year-olds pick up second languages before their parents, translation and household errands and tasks (i.e. – arranging doctor’s appointments) marked my childhood. This meant growing accustomed to a few things I still carry with me today: 1) A willingness to take risks and make mistakes to solve the problem at hand. This included having thick skin, and an awareness that my culture of origin could often a liability. Read more>>

John Spargo

I think this particular story begins in Abilene, TX. When I was 14 years old, I was exposed to the music of Black Sabbath for the very first time, and it rocked my whole world. It was like gospel, the good news! As soon as I heard that thick, oozy sound, I knew I had to hear more, and more, and soon enough I was spiraling ever further into a riff rabit hole, chasing that riff dragon, trying to recreate the face crushing sensation of hearing Black Sabbath’s music for the first time.  Read more>>

Rebecca James

I grew up in the hill country of Spring Branch, Texas, which is just north of San Antonio and south of Austin. A big part of my life has been competing in pageants. In fact, at the beginning of April, I gave up my title as Miss San Antonio USA after reigning for 19 months and being the longest reigning Miss San Antonio USA ever! I started competing when I was 13, and over the last 10 years, I have experienced not only new friendships and new opportunities, but I have gained countless life skills, such as presence and public speaking, that I continue to use in my daily life. Pageants also encouraged me to serve my community on issues I am passionate about. I continue to do work raising awareness about domestic violence, and over the last year, I have begun to work with National Alliance on Mental Illness and speak up on the issue of suicide prevention.

William Perry

My earliest memories of falling in love with music probably dates back to middle school. I played the clarinet in the neighboring high school’s advanced band and played no lower than 2nd chair in probably every other band as well; concert band, marching band, pep band, jazz band – if you needed that extra “UMPH”, I was always “that guy”. Around the time I got into high school, my cousin Eric (TRN EricDPrince) introduced me to what is now FL Studio. Read more>>

Mallory Mundy

I fell in love with people and entrepreneurship at a very young age. Growing up with my father, I’ve been around sales my entire life. I started in fashion and in the service industry and then made my way into real estate when my husband and I moved to Austin from New Orleans. I fell in love with the process and the relationships that real estate provided me. I started as a sales agent in 2015 here in Texas and quickly made my way into leadership on the brokerage side. I fell in love with having high level conversations with real estate agents about their business and growth trajectory. Read more>>

April Willis

I am a first-generation college graduate who grew up with the most loving and supportive family. My mom was an immigrant from the Middle East and my dad was from the military, so their greatest priority for me was to gain a good education to create a life bigger than I could imagine. I went on to not only graduate college, but to earn a doctorate and three master’s degrees. I worked at the campus, district, and state levels of education and was certified to be a superintendent, a principal, and about six different areas in teaching. Read more>>

Amanda Bartz

Wisconsinites our entire lives, my husband and I decided to move south to Austin after I received a job offer with a great team. Although I’m in the learning and development facet of HR and enjoy what I do, I have always had a love and passion for events (especially weddings). I came across Ashley Nicole Affair on Instagram and loved her work and the beautiful weddings she produced. I contacted her to see if she could use another addition to her team and, needless to say, I haven’t looked back since! Read more>>

Fiona Thomas

I started my business in 2019 while I was still working as a paramedic running emergency calls for a busy ambulance service. Making candles was my way of relaxing in between 24-hour shifts and finding a means of stress relief. I rapidly fell in love with melting wax in my double boiler and adding dyes and scents, but it wasn’t long before I decided that I wanted to make my work more ‘me’, and part of that included sharing them with the rest of the world. Read more>>

Tina Wissner

In 2009 I wrote my first draft of Santa’s Kittens, a picture book for children ages 2 to 6. Because I was working on a variety of stories in 2009, I put Santa’s Kittens into my WIP (Work in Progress) folder. After three years had passed, I picked up where I left off, and had some critique partners give suggestions. I rewrote the story in rhyme, changed a few names, and began adding art notes. As a collector of Beanie Babies, I then drafted a toy kitten prototype for a toy maker to consider. For me, this process was easiest. In the year 2018, with good timing and a little luck, I was able to order seven unique kittens. Read more>>

Eric Pedley

While I was bartending at the Hilton, I had gotten some succulents from a friend who was moving to Costa Rica, and they sparked my interest. A couple who lived in the condos upstairs suggested that I just start making succulent arrangements, so that week I started buying from some growers around Texas, and got a spot in the farmers market very quickly in time to sell for Christmas. I continued doing every type of market in Austin and the Hill country, and eventually made a wholesale sale to Red Barn. One weekend when I was having a backyard Craigslist plant sale, a guy named John Fasano said he had greenhouse space that I could rent. Read more>>

Trinidad Agosto

While reflecting on my life, I’ve come to realize that there are three words that have described my journey thus far. Them being, curiosity, tenacity, and truth. My musical journey began “late” as some people have remarked, but better late than never! I began playing guitar my sophomore year in high school, and singing, my senior year. It was in those classes that I had learned that going to college for singing, or for guitar was a viable option. I had not known about colleges, nor the possibilities offered. My family didn’t have much opportunity to attend college and therefore it was all unknown territory. As a result, I had given into the preconceived notions of enlisting into the military, as many have done in my family before. Read more>>

Angela & Karlie

We were sitting outside after a long day of work, talking about the passions we share, and unlike others we admire from afar, how we don’t spend enough time doing them. Karlie looked at me and said “Why not us?”, & then Moment in Thyme was born. Put simply, we are not your grandmother’s picnic. We specialize in creating a picturesque moment to be enjoyed with family and friends. We dream big, but the core mission will always stay the same: creating luxury events for casual moments, one bougie picnic at a time Read more>>

Jocelyn H Garcia

Hi Voyage Magazine! My name is Jocelyn, & I come from a small town in South Texas. Mostly everyone calls me Joy, and it’s truly a nickname that defines me in one word. Although it wasn’t until this past year where I was able to embrace it completely. I realized I have a special gift and I wanted to use it with more intention. My purpose is not just to spread my joy onto others, but to inspire, impact, and add value to your life. My roots go back to being a ballerina. I danced for 15+ years and did all of the classics such as ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, contemporary, etc. I know sacrifice, discipline, persistence, elegance, patience, and determination. Shortly before starting college I became intrigued about photography and film. Read more>>

Heidi Lowell

I have been creating ever since I held my first pencil. The creative process is a constant exploration of the balance between freedom and order. Before I paint patterns on my work using latex, which help control the flow of the water. I love using watercolors because the fluid dynamics give me a chance to collaborate with my medium in making a piece of work. My work is inspired by the natural world. I love the paradoxical nature of a waterfall, which is chaotic but also very peaceful. My works embraces both the chaos, and order of the natural work, and I hope that this gives the viewer permission to embrace the messy and beautiful aspects of their own spirit. Read more>>

César Barroso

After 9 years grinding out a career in talent representation in Los Angeles, where I was partner at an agency, the pandemic threw a huge wrench in the path I was on. Our agency suffered greatly during the lockdowns and the pandemic; after a few months the writing was on the wall: I’d soon be out on my ass, having lost a thriving business and my job in a handful of frantic weeks. You’d think I’d have been devastated after such a turn of events, but to my great surprise, I felt huge relief to find myself unemployed. I realized I that there was very little about the career I had built that I liked, I stumbled into it and then stayed because it was comfortable and because I was too comfortable, or too afraid, to risk veering off of the path I had fallen into. Read more>>

Peter Daniels

A New Entry was started from the belief that every person no matter what has happened to them up that point can have their best opportunity of learning to live “Fully Alive”. The story of ANE began with a series of personal life crisis that left me asking God what his plan was for me. Facing divorce, porn addiction, workaholism, obesity and spiritual bankruptcy I dedicated 30 days to hearing God’s voice and plan for my life. That was in the Spring of 2001. I heard clearly from that time I would become a counselor to men who were having life experiences like mine. I left a 7 year financially successful career afforded by my master’s in electrical engineering behind. I had worked for Bell Labs, Emerson and National Instruments and now I was going back to UT Austin to become a clinical social worker.  Read more>>

Carlie Pearson

Carlie Pearson Mixed Media Artist, Sculptor, Writer, Curator, Art Installer After acquiring a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas at the age of 21, I realized that I was not cut out for starvation. I went to Christine Valmy School for Estheticians in New York City and came back to Austin only to continue waiting tables until I achieved the level of confidence necessary to open my own business. I was a small business owner until my daughter was born and I also have a son. I consider them my greatest creations. For over 25 years, I have had the most broad definition of art. Mine took the form of cooking, raising children, gardening, writing, and staging houses that my husband and I flipped. Around 5 years ago I tentatively “picked up a brush” again. Read more>>

Alison Morales

Punk Rock Anthropology originally started as a simple class assignment. One of my professors challenged us to find people that had our dream careers. My ultimate dream was to be some type of music journalist and have my own media company. I took it a step further and looked for women that had this type of career. And in the year 2016, it was still slim to none. It just bothered me that women (especially women of color) are not represented in the punk and hardcore scenes. The crazier part is that we make up such a big part of that scene, especially in Texas and other parts of the United States. Read more>>

Sharon Elizabeth Kocziany

I am wedding photographer originally, based in Europe, Hungary, but I am half American as well. I lived in Los Angeles in my early childhood. Then moved to Europe. As a wedding photographer I found a huge gap in the market last year and I tried to find a solutions to it. As an event professional(photographer, make up artist, florist etc…) you usually spend a lot of money on advertising and then you wait for clients to contact you. I’’ve noticed there is no platform for event professionals where these professionals could make the first step, where they could browse through events created by event clients and apply. Read more>>

Koloméa (also known as K. Chekhlata)

I was born and grew up in Kyiv, Ukraine, and I’ve lived in the United States for eighteen years now. I am a photographer and I lead a somewhat nomadic lifestyle, but I spent the last twelve years in New York, and came to Austin at the end of 2021. I fell in love with the energy and the enchanting flora here. I love the live oak trees lining my street. Since I was little, I was doing a million artistic things at once. I painted, I wrote poetry and short stories, I would write, direct, and choreograph plays, I danced, and I tried learning several instruments. I just could not get enough of life, and I always felt most alive when I was creating. The medium did not matter one bit. Read more>>

Daniel Woodroffe

I was born and raised in Cambridge, England, and received my degrees at Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. In a classic example of polar opposites, I found myself in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on a student exchange, and the incredible experience I had there led me to Austin, via a detour in Dallas. Twenty five years later, my roots are firmly planted in east Austin with my wife, Terry, our kid, Ethan, and the world’s largest English Labrador, Pancake. (photo suggestion: Terry, Ethan and Daniel) Read more>>

Nicole Christopherson

I began my career as a bilingual elementary school educator in Granada, Spain. When I moved back to California, my family was heavily involved in real estate, so while I was still teaching, I began studying for my real estate career. Eventually, I achieved my master’s degree in literacy education, which I realized I could also apply to real estate. I used my skills to teach my clients about homeownership, condensing complex concepts into easily understandable ones. About one year later, I met my husband, who encouraged me to pursue real estate full time in order to have a healthier work-life balance. The story of how I founded my company isn’t anything crazy, just a lot of hard work and dedication. The best part is that it’s ongoing – I’m still adding new chapters, the latest of which is our expansion into Austin. Read more>>

Michelle Trejo Wood

As a digital marketing expert and brand storyteller with over ten years of experience, I’m well aware that many women in the creative industry never reach executive or leadership positions. Nearly 50% of women in the creative industry dream of opening their own businesses and only 12% think it is a realistic goal. And an even smaller margin of those women end up starting their own companies. In fact, women-owned creative agencies account for less than 0.1% of the industry! There is an even wider leadership gap for women of color. Read more>>

Aaron Alexander

In my earlier years, I was feeling quite insecure and chose to insulate insecurity with muscle, so I got really obsessed with bodybuilding. That obsession then led to various injuries and imbalances. Finally I commenced the process of putting the pieces together, which is what I am still doing now! Every day is a new learning experience for me, as well as healing my body inside and out through supportive, daily movement. I am a manual therapist and movement coach, founder and creator of the Align Method, author of the Align Method book, and host of the Align Podcast. Read more>>

Ashley Larson

Growing up, I always had a devoted love for fashion. I always knew that I would end up somewhere in the industry. When I was 18, I got signed to a modeling agency in Minneapolis, this was really the beginning of my journey. I received incredible opportunities to be apart of London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and so much more. I began to see the industry up close and personal, I started to work with designers, makeup artists, stylists, and photographers. It gave me insight on the different aspects there are in the world of fashion. As time went on, I started discovering my niche in the industry. Read more>>

Rachel Luna

As a young girl from Texas with big dreams, I got myself into different jobs before. You know, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And I have always been a goal-getter. My grandma taught me to live life and take risks, and I will always cling to that. The turning point for me was right after college. I was given the opportunity to work with a Houston-based homebuilder, worked my ass out, became the youngest number one salesperson, and got inducted into million-dollar clubs. After that, it opened a lot of opportunities for me. I was tapped by the title company of the builder I worked for, took the risk, and it paid off. Read more>>

Adrienne Park

Hi! My name is Adrienne park. I’m 22 years old, and I’ve been performing for about a year and a few months now. I own and manage my drag and burlesque troupe, starlet burlesque! We got our start in October of 2020, when a few of my high school friends and roommates got together to perform a shadowcast of rocky horror at stonewall. In the beginning stages of the pandemic, we had to be really really careful, and the crowd and venue had so many restrictions. However, our first show at stonewall warehouse went so well, we were asked to come back and do burlesque once a month, and though none of us had any burlesque experience, we decided to take it on!

We were formed online through an Instagram audition post, Our love for Girl groups honestly brought us together! After a year of solely communicating through the internet we decided that moving to a music capitol would be beneficial to all of us. We had a lot of ups and downs since we all came from different places ( Luna from Missouri, Jelecia from Idaho and Maria from El Paso) and this was our first time up and moving by ourselves.

Olivia Suárez

My musical journey is for sure a whirlwind, but an amazing one at that. For starters, I’ve been singing almost all of my life. My earliest music memory is singing No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” when I was three years old. My dad likes to say that I would sing my own songs a little before then, so the songwriting started early too. My love for singing really grew when I was in elementary and middle school. I often participated in talent shows, performing songs by Hilary Duff, Vanessa Carlton, and Michelle Branch. I was in choir for about six years, often serving as a soprano section leader.
