When I performed on violin for 4-H's Share the Fun event, I placed first at the county and district levels and second at the state level, and was later asked to play at the 4-H Foundation Dinner and two Volunteer Recognition Dinners.I placed high in both county and district events, leading my team to the state level competition two years in succession.When I went to this camp, I knew no one, but was soon able to form friendships with the other campers, cooperate with them in teams, and lead others in several activities.This opened my eyes to many new ways of giving my time to help my community.Through music therapy I will be able to work with children who have learning disabilities and emotional problems.
