Why did you join Tonality?

I joined Tonality because as an Asian American and Indigenous Mexican American woman, I grew up feeling under-represented. I hoped that by being in this group, I could be a catalyst for change and help to empower both of my ethnicities.

Why do you feel a group like this is important?

A group such as Tonality is important because they bring attention to very important, yet sometimes uncomfortable issues that need to be shared in a respectful and sensitive way. The best way to do this is through the power of music and community.

What is a particular moment you remember from singing in a Tonality concert?

There were and are many amazing moments that I get to share with these amazing singers. I enjoy how we will take the time to have amazing conversations about difficult topics. This way, I have learned so much about the lives of my colleagues.
