She has recently been accepted into Seattle Opera Teen Vocal Studio and is attending computer music classes at Green River College in the Running Start program.
"Ghost," written about her struggle with anxiety, was released on Halloween 2021,with hopes of generating awareness about invisible mental health struggles and proceeds benefiting mental health services for artists.
