Raven Y. Mahar (18), Yangon, Myanmar

Hey guys! I am Raven and I am a student currently studying my last year in Yangon. I’ve both written and illustrated many articles for my school’s monthly magazine and newsletters. My love for music is probably hands down unrivalled. I personally play the tenor saxophone in a symphonic band so my interest for classical music is pretty self-explanatory. However, in my free time, I am all ears for the latest music in the world of Pop, House, R&B, and Techno as well. Music has always influenced me emotionally throughout my whole life and will definitely continue to do so. I am a bass singer for a concert choir and I also sing for fun school events in a gig with my friends. Music never seems to leave me really, and I have no intention of complaining about that ever! I still remember my very first song that introduced me to western music and that was no other than Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed a Girl’. I basically grew up with my favourite Queen of Pop, Lady Gaga. Other artists that I also lovingly enjoy are Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Kygo and counting as more and more amazing artists stand up. I mean, what more can I say? Music is love, Music is Life.
