Over the two years I’ve known Deanna, she has instilled in me an appreciation for music that has changed my life. We first bonded over our love for Lady Gaga, but as we became closer she introduced so many amazing artists that I otherwise never would have known existed. She is aware of the unique impact music has had on her life, and her strongest desire is for others to discover the magic that only music can make you feel. This passion is unparalleled and incredibly inspiring. Every time I talk to her she is excited to share with me the latest songs she’s found, and I found myself constantly asking for screenshots of her Spotify library because I love them all. I can’t imagine now what it would be like without the music that gets me through the tough days and makes the greatest ones even better.
