Participating as a violin player with the Kent Junior Orchestra, England or the Yale Choir America are some high of her young career. As well as playing with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra from South Africa, or being the “1st flute” in Nutcracker Suite Tchaikovsky with the Scottish Youth Orchestra and participating on local artist’s albums. “Adding the sound of my violin to Dj set is a great experience as it is one of the most heart-rending instruments I have experienced. The flute is closest to the human voice. Since the flute is very expressive, it can touch your soul unlike other instruments. It is soulful and uplifting”.
