Katie loves being able to contribute to the community and teaches singing lessons to kids outside of her university hours, as well as being keen to participate in charity events by performing in fundraising concerts and markets. She is grateful for the gift of music in her life, and believes that hard work is integral to success in all kinds of disciplines.
When the weather is fine Katie enjoys longboarding to university as a great way to get fresh air and sunshine between all those long hours spent inside practicing.
