It's amazing to hear what previous award winners have achieved in their lives since receiving their JTYAF award.
Back in 2009 the JTYAF awarded a drum kit to a talented young musician.
Her mother has recently got in touch to let us know that during the eight years since the award, the young girl has followed her dream to live in America and study music.
In 2014, she won a scholarship to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Next month she completes her degree and will return back to Berklee College in September to achieve the Global Jazz Masters Program.
A huge well done to you! What a life changing experience. We wish you all the best for the future.
