Mandy Harvey had a dream of becoming a music teacher.
Her journey with music began when she was four years old and joined a choir, even though she was hard of hearing. But when she turned 18, she lost all of her hearing and had to reassess what she was going to do with her life. Despite a depression, she determined to continue singing and began to write her own music.
Mandy's story is one of determination, failing and getting back up, and continuing to try. And it perfectly captures her desire to encourage other people to reach their fullest potential.
