Growing up, my family (even my awesome little brother) came to every single concert I ever performed in. I always had cheerleaders in the audience and that was something I loved about performing.
Now that I live over 2,000 miles from home, logistically my family can't be there. BUT, I've made a new family here at Wellesley and I am so lucky that they are so supportive. Last night, not only did my floor came to my Brandeis-Wellesley orchestra performance but they surprised me with beautiful flowers and chocolate after. It was so incredibly sweet of them. My RA, Filia, made the awesome card. They really made the night special.
