  8. First of all, to my professor, Mr. Stephen Drury,
    thank you so much for your guidance over the past five years.
    I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you throughout my whole undergraduate journey. You inspired me to discover my own voice as a pianist, to grow as a more complete artist, and to find who I am as a person, through the process of exploring music. You patiently allowed me the freedom to experiment, to make mistakes, and to learn from both. To me, you are not only a music professor, but a life mentor.

    To my parents,
    thank you for giving me so much support in pursuing my dream.
    You’re the light of my life and the solid foundation which allows me to bravely explore the world. Thanks especially to you, Mom. You are the bravest, strongest, and most independent woman I have ever known. You will always be my role model. You have been there for me during the hard moments and have helped me so much in becoming the person and musician I am today.

    To my friends and NEC,
    thank you so much for being such an important part of my life these five years. It was my great honor to collaborate with so many amazing musicians. You sparked my creativity, challenging me to become a more mature
    musician. I’m truly grateful to have been part of the NEC community!
