“I have loved music and singing ever since I was a kid, and my dream was to become a musician when I grow up. My sister supported me and pushed me because she was a violin player, and my family didn’t mind. I had a good voice so I started singing, I sang a lot and my father supported me, and decided to help me develop my talent. People suggested that I learn how to play Saz, and I started learning while I was 13 years old, I also tried to do well at school. I kept playing and my skills were getting better and better. I am now preparing for the 12th grade final exams, which determines my future. I have to try hard and study well, so I’m currently focusing on education and a bit distant from music. However, I will never quit music, or school. I want to get high marks so I make my family proud, I also want to become a musician so I can make myself proud”.
