“All my summers have given me memorable moments, but I believe this summer with the LACO family I will have the most memorable and learning experiences of my life. Although I may not call myself a musician, music has always been there for me. Music has been my way of expressing myself, it has allowed for me to be whom I am and express what I feel. Even though I played the violin for a brief time, I can say it was a very rewarding experience. It taught me that practice and hard work always pay off. Music is an important part of my life because it has helped me through stressful times.

LACO has given me one of the biggest opportunities to grow as an individual and I am forever grateful. I believe that I will learn from this experience, I will become a more responsible young adult. Having been accepted into this internship I hope to give back more than I will gain. The older I get the more I realize the importance of growing as an individual. LACO has given me a chance to show how much of a hard worker I am and how much I am willing to do in order to learn and be more responsible. There are many things I hope to gain from this internship, but most importantly I hope I will be helpful and show that I am here to do whatever it is they need. Thank you LACO, I appreciate this grand opportunity.”
