Music has always played a big role in my life and personal growth,  whether it was experienced alone, with friends or strangers. Music has always fascinated me with its ability to convey nuanced emotions that most people find hard to articulate in words.

This publication grew out of a personal yearning to understand the different ways my peers related to music while venturing out of my comfort zone to conduct one-on-one interviews and photoshoots. 12 weeks to make a whole book was a huge undertaking, but it was an immensely valuable exercise not just in visual design but also connecting more with the people around me through our shared hopes and fears — our common ground. 

An interview series exploring the role of music in the lives of 10 college students.

I also compiled every song mentioned in the publication into a public Spotify playlist with the intention of exposing readers to songs that might be currently off their radar.
