www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Fourteen-year-old violinist, Faith Meshida, is not only passionate about performing classical music, but she also wants to help create opportunities for other Black classical musicians.

"There are few Black people in the current classical music industry and I aim to change that," she told Patch.

Before the Central Gwinnett High School student can accomplish that, she said she must first sharpen her own skills. That means hours of practice and learning from more experienced and seasoned musicians. Recently, Faith was offered admission into the Brevard Music Center's 2022 High School Orchestral Institute in North Carolina, which is a prestigious six-and-a-half-week summer program for classical instrumentalists. She was granted a partial scholarship, but still has over $4,000 to pay out-of-pocket. She launched a GoFundMe campaign to help raise the additional dollars.
