Patricia, 14: “I was happy to help my fellow violinists when they needed it”

Patricia, age 14, is a violinist and Peer Mentor. When she was six years old, her eight-year-old brother took it upon himself to teach her violin. Ever since, she’s dedicated herself to giving back.

Patricia has been student body president at her school for the past two years, and currently serves as principal second violin in the Harmony Project Orchestra. “I was happy to step into the leadership role, to be able to help my fellow violinists when they needed it. It felt really good!”

We’re spotlighting children as they grow up in Harmony Project, from age 6 through high school graduation, as a special ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬ feature.
