How Do Communication and Self Interrelate ? Project : Response
I have always loved music and I still do . When I was younger , I remembered that I had a singing voice , I joined choral groups and was an active member in it , but I never had the guts to sing solo . Then when I went to high school I got caught up with trying to fit in , dealing with my own issues and coping with academics that I did not had time to sing and I was to scared to try out for the choir or [banner_entry_middle]
