Being able to follow my dream and have the support of the Talent Trust means the world to me! I’m very grateful for the jury’s confidence in me as an emerging artist and the financial support you’ve given to all the recipients.
I cannot adequately express in words the gratitude I feel not only for the financial support your scholarship provides, but the support and belief in my artistic practice. As an emerging artist this support is invaluable.
If it wasn’t for the generous support of family, friends, community partners, and organizations like the Talent Trust, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. I hope to inspire other music students in my community and province.
Having been actively involved in the arts community… I’m excited to bring my passion and determination to this amazing opportunity and hope to share what I’ve learned with my home province in the future.
