How did you hear about TŌN? What inspired you to apply?

I heard about TŌN thanks to the information provided by the Filarmonica Joven de Colombia. My motivation was to be able to do a master’s degree in orchestra where I could play great pieces of the orchestral repertoire.

Who is your biggest inspiration?

It is difficult to select just one person as my greatest source of inspiration. I consider myself a person really committed to veganism and animal rights; therefore, I find every vegan influencer who tries to bring their discourse through activism, seeking to raise awareness for a better world, extremely inspiring. I do believe in the transformative power of these people.
