My name is Asia Robinson, I am from Oakland California. I am a graduating senior psychology major with plans of becoming a relationship and family counselor.

My mindset has  been different each semester, for my last semester I am struggling with shifting from being a college student to being a college graduate. Everywhere I turn someone expects me to have my life figured out and every so often I forget that I am only 21. Before I graduate I want to establish healthy habits ( physical and emotional) and I want to find inner peace.  I am not told that it is okay to take a break or be unsure about what I want to do next. I have a whole journey to complete that will be filled with mistakes and uncertainty but as long as I stay true to myself and continue to make myself happy I’ll never fail.

My experience with music started early in elementary school. I played the clarinet in the school band for a few years. Going into my fifth grade year I was involved in my first musical titled “Ohana means family”. At the end of that school year I joined Ailey Camp which is apart of Alvin Ailey’s American Dance Theater. During the program we learned a variety of different dancing styles including: African, Modern, Jazz, Ballet etc. In the years following  I was apart of more dance groups but my  focused shifted to basketball in high school and my music/ dance career ended.

I know how important music has been throughout our history so I am excited to learn more about the different genres from the various time periods.
