My name is Priscilla Braden-Quinonez. I dream to work in the music industry. Meeting with DJ Shy inspired me more because she never gave up on her goal to be a DJ, which she says is her destiny. She applied at ”The Laugh Factory’,’ which is a comedy club, and worked as a waitress. She asked her boss if she could be the DJ at the comedy club. From there she went on to work with the Nike company. Now she is a DJ who does parties and premieres. I know that even though I’m not sure I want to be a DJ, I know I will work in music whether through acting or being a musician. Meeting with DJ Shy made me see that with hard work and a dream you can be whatever you want to be.
