ShaDaia, 23 – FUNDED

ShaDaia is a Paliwal Club of 100 Music Scholars Fund winner, and dreams of using her digital music tech degree from San Diego Community College, School of Arts, to become a music engineer and teacher. Here’s what else she has to say!

What is your professional dream?

I want to be a music engineer and teacher.

What does being in the Paliwal Club of 100 mean to you? 

It gives me a since of pride and inspires me to continue the journey.

Women are underrepresented in the S.T.E.A.M. (science, tech, arts or math) fields and music industry. How can we change this? 

I believe we could create more communities that connect us and put us into the industry such as networking, conferences, and support groups.

What are some of the challenges you have faced along the way?

It has been a challenge to get the assistance I need and meet people doing the same thing so I can develop more

How will this grant from the 1,000 Dreams Fund help you reach your goals?

It will provide a source for me to invest in my career and get through school
