What is your passion and why is it more than a mere interest for you?
Digital Literacy my passion: Piano practice I have several passions, but the one that I can write about the most is piano practicing. It is a passion and not an interest, because I started at a very young age. I simply practiced and got better. I do not know what inspired me, because I was 3 when I started. I competed in 2 piano competitions, in which I got both Honorable mentions. I was going for the third competition, practicing 6-8 hours a day in the summer, when my piano teacher left. The two competitions that I competed in were the same one, just in two consecutive years. It was called the MMTA. Missouri Music Teachers Association. I originally lived in Kansas, but made 45 minuet commutes to Missouri each week, to get my piano lesson. 4 years of running altogether. I competed in it, which made an impact on the competition. My family drove to Warrensburg, 4 hours, like from Kansas to Missouri, because my piano teacherâ€™s studio was in Missouri.
