Finally graduated! These two years at the Royal College of Music have been the most exciting of my life (so far). With so many wonderful projects and encounters, I can't express how grateful I am to have been part of such incredible institution. Big thanks to the outstanding teaching staff, but also the Creative Career Centre crew who gave me such rewarding opportunities with their incredible work commitment, and of course my generous donors who made this whole experience possible.
