"Before my first season with Genesis, I always had an admiration for those brave enough to participate in drum corps. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would ever be one to participate in something like this. However, when I heard about Genesis' audition camp for the 2011 season from a couple of friends, I decided to go and see what the craze was all about.
I was hooked instantly.
There was just something about the rush I felt from pushing myself further than I though possible and the warmth from staff and fellow auditionees. I felt that this might be something that I was genuinely interested in. I'm so thankful that I was able to march that summer, because it changed my entire perspective on how I lived my life. From then on, I never felt that any obstacle couldn't be tackled or that I couldn't push through something difficult to reap the benefits at the end, which was especially helpful for the two more seasons that I marched here. Along the way, I have built a number of relationships with so many people from all over the country and I'm proud to call anyone affiliated with the program my family."
