Playing by Heart: my first feature for AFAR Magazine

I’ve honestly never been more excited for a magazine story to come out. This story, a feature in the July/August issue of AFAR magazine, is deeply meaningful to me, and I’ll admit I’m really proud of it. AFAR sent me to Spain to pursue an old abandoned childhood passion, which resulted in the incredible opportunity to study with three of the top female flamenco guitarists in Spain. I traveled to Madrid, Granada, and Barcelona, and I will never forget my experience, which was truly life-changing. I hope you enjoy the story, which you can read here.
