It's easy not to listen and gloss over the words on the television. Or the radio, or the newspaper, or what your friends are talking about at work. Amplify makes that harder.
From the beginning, Amplify emphasized the great importance of not just listening, but feeling what the other young individuals in our community and our world are going through. It was incredibly eyeopening to connect with teens from around the world just by listening to their songs. Music is the most wonderful thing in the world to me. I believe that it is the universal language. It relies on the emotion and purpose of a thought, and not pronunciation. The beauty of it is, you are not required to speak, or even listen, to understand. All you have to do is close your eyes, and let the music trigger your deepest memories.
I will never say music saved me, instead, it gave me the strength and courage to save myself. Amplify gave me confidence in my voice and reminded me that even I could make a difference in the world. Amplify has truly shifted the way I view music, opening up more doors of possibilities than I ever imagined. This program is proof that I can combine my greatest passions into something both beautiful and impactful.
I am truly grateful for the memories and experience Amplify has given me, thank you for inspiring and bringing to light the people who care.
