  • Before I found PCM, I lacked follow-through. I didn’t realize I had potential. I didn’t take my talent seriously. In just two years, I’ve gone from being scared to death on stage to having the time of my life. It’s because of the support, the relationships built and the connections I have made. Before I found PCM, I was not very reliable. I was late for everything. I didn’t think it mattered. Now I know we all depend on each other to be the best we can be!
