What made you decide to join The IMPACT and become a DJ?

When I was younger I did voice overs and always had a dream to be on the radio. I joined impact as a volunteer for music review, graphics, and air staff. Finally I did my DJ training and made my dream a reality. 


What has been your best on-air experience?

During one of my shifts I got a message through our request line that someone loves my music taste.


What is the best concert experience you have had? Why? 

I saw U2 in 2016, the energy of the crowd was the most powerful feeling I had ever experienced. Every song made my body shake, the set design was insane, and the tour was Joshua Tree. 


How do you think working in radio will affect your future career and life?

Working in radio will give me the capability to make connections in photography, videography, communication skills,  and working in the music industry itself.
