Hello! My name is Ericka Galvan and i'm 18 years old. I'm from Dallas Texas and I was born deaf . Even though i was born unable to hear, I'm very passionate about singing since it allows me to express myself and step away from all of the emotions and many worries this wonderful world brings. I deeply enjoy playing the guitar for my church, it's such a pleasant feeling playing music for a crowd that is willing to hear you perform. Music has been a big influence in my life and I can tell the happiness and positive influence it brings to the ones listening. I hope one day to begin writing my own songs, and to become the first person in my family to attend college. This project is a symbol of passion for the ones who want to learn music through a higher education. I want to be able to support individuals that are trying to master their love for music but experience financial struggles. With your help, this project will be able to impact millions of people.
