This is it, the end of the MIA road.
I thought I would be okay & able to handle the end of MIA, but I can’t.
These past 2 years have been both crazy and amazing & I’ll never forget them.
Coming straight outta Compton…(not really) I was scared half to death about going straight to college.
Being a high school kid who only really knew singing and what was taught in school,looking at the SSL for the first time scared me shitless..and seeing what the 2nd years had to do later on (APP)… no thank you. Intimidation was definitely the word.
I had many doubts and didn’t know if I could handle it or succeed… but I did and I’m glad I stuck around.
I have so many people to thank for helping me through everything and being nothing short of the best (students and teachers). 1st year Lab A & 2nd year Lab F - you guys are all fucking awesome; Thank you for such a fun time full of weird&great memories!
To the profs, thank you for everything; your support, your guidance, your criticisms, your jokes, your knowledge…everything. MIA is one of a kind.
I’m privileged to have witnessed so many people grow and kick ass in what feels like such a short time. And the talent of everyone is simply amazing. Words don’t even begin to express how lucky I am to have met and worked with such awesome people!
I can’t wait to see what everyone does, whether you stay in the industry or not… follow your heart.
Honestly, no words can express how I feel right now. Bittersweet maybe? I don’t know.
But what I do know is that I’m grateful to have been part of such an amazing program and my life has been forever changed.
I definitely don’t listen to music the same anymore, haha.
Good luck to all of you and continue to be great!
And thank you again to everyone!
It’s been real.
