52 Stories: Josue
How did you find out about HOLA?
My mom found out that my cousin was going to HOLA. Since I was already playing the trumpet, she talked to my aunt and they decided that it would be good for me to join the program.
What do you like about the program?
I like that YOLA at HOLA prepares you for a career. They also provide tutoring when I need help with my homework.
Who is your favorite composer?
I like Mahler because his music has a lot of brass instruments.
What would you like to be when you grow up?
I want to be a musician.
