She received a medal for being an Outstanding Performer at the local level . . . that advanced her to the state level. This was her second year making it to state. It is an Honor just to make it to state. 92% of the performers at the state level are Asian, my fair skin dark brown hair and Hazel eye princess sticks out BIG Time. She is excited to return back to playing and improve on what she has learned this year. Her long term goal is to place at the state level.
She also received recognition as being the most improved for all her hard work. She practices about 2 hours a day!! Last fall we switched piano teachers to give her more of a challenge. She is very gifted in her ability to understand and play music. Her mind can understand at a higher level then her hands are able to play. She works daily on exercising her hands, so that in a year or so they will be able to work better together. She knows that this gift is from God.
One of the BEST things that weekend was being able to share it with her dearest friend. They have been friends from the age of 2. They are truly kindred spirits!!
