In April of this year I finally graduated from Briercrest College with my B.A. in Music Vocal Performance. It was a long journey but I finally finished school. I feel blessed to have learned from such amazing professors who have poured their knowledge of music, the voice, and faith into me. At the beginning of the summer I had planned to work for just custodial for the next year, take voice lessons here and there, and just be involved in performances around the Caronport community. However I have been offered to teach voice at Briercrest to beginner singers in the high school and perhaps the college as well. I am very excited, nervous, anxious, and willing to learn and gain new experience.
Teaching is something that I NEVER thought I would ever get into, and to be frank I didn’t want to. Because I still have struggles of my own, I thought that I couldn’t be a teacher because I’m not perfect and sometimes I don’t have all the answers. And then it made me think of my previous teachers, men and women who are not at all perfect. I realized that just because I may not know EVERYTHING doesn’t mean that I cannot pour into other people. I have knowledge that if I do not share that would be selfish of me. I don’t have to be perfect, I just have to try my best and that is what I am going to do.
So even though I might be scared to death of the new beginning chapter, I am going to walk through the blank pages and let life begin to write down everything that happens. All I can do is let God write the story that He wants to write.
