Islay has a strong affinity for working with children, fostering their creativity. For over two years, she served as a Certified Registered Behavior Technician, working primarily with children with disabilities, including those with ADHD. Islay firmly believes that music serves as a powerful medium for everyone, especially children, to connect and express themselves from a young age. In her spare time, she enjoys painting, dancing, singing, playing soccer, and serving others. Islay is always eager to learn something new whenever possible. To her, music is a bridge that connects people from diverse backgrounds and cultures, bringing joy and happiness to others.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
