Graphic Designer; Regional Director | California
Hi! My name is Anna, and I am a senior at Stockdale High School in California. I started taking piano lessons at five years old following the lead of my two older sisters, but soon felt that practicing was a chore and my only motivation was stickers and ice cream. When I was ten years old, I picked up the cello because I thought a large instrument was “cool,” and I developed a love for music that I hadn’t realized was being nurtured that whole time. In high school, I’ve been able to attend statewide orchestras and competitions and serve as principal cellist of multiple orchestras, including at Carnegie Hall for the New York International Music Festival and in Japan! Music has taught me so much and has helped me make amazing new friends from all around the world. I have always been fascinated by the power of music for stress management and therapy, so I am extremely grateful for opportunities like Little Virtuosos. In my free time, I like rewatching movies, playing tennis, and cooking!
