When I moved to LA in 2012, I had no idea that my childhood (and now) celebrity crush would be soon announcing the project that I would be in charge of launching on the GRAMMY Stage.
It was a surreal moment where so many dreams were colliding as I sat in the Staples Center and watched Justin Timberlake announce the launch of the Music Educator Award. The months leading up to that moment were filled with lots of marketing and logistical research as I was thrown into a brand new position at the GRAMMY Foundation where I was expected to implement this brand new award.
I had so much fun getting to pour praises on our first two award winners during GRAMMY Week. They got to walk the red carpet with the likes of Ringo Starr, they sat at the GRAMMY’s in front of artists like Beyonce, and followed behind Lorde into the press room. It was quite a surreal moment for them (and me).
