I am currently a freshman in the Rutgers business school double majoring in finance and economics and minoring in criminology. I am part of the Rutgers Women club volleyball team and I presented in front of the CEO of a company that provides athletic scholarships to students.
Being a part of YOCJ has taught to be not only a better musician but also a more motivated one. The audition process prepared me for Region II Band auditions and I actually made it! YOCJ also challenged me with a wide range of pieces and motivated me to practice more. It is a great opportunity to improve upon yourself and meet new people who share your passion.
Best of luck, Tessa Zhang
