So I actually started telling this story in my "Why I ended up in music school" video, but I ultimately decided that it was a topic for another video, so I told it in this one.
As you can tell from the last few videos, my music life was heavily influenced by my family. I'm the youngest (for now, until I become an aunt or mom one day...) in my family, so it naturally feels more comfortable to listen, follow, and go with what my family thinks works for me. I also attribute my venture into YouTube to my family as well, as they were the ones who suggested that I give it a try after I showed them video after video of one funny vlogger after another.
While I've grown up a lot since then and have become much more independent, I'm still thankful for my family's ability to see what my strengths were and encourage that I hone those strengths.
I'm pretty lucky, to be honest.
