Why Marigold?

I am the child of immigrant parents who didn’t believe in music education. I was on my own for a lot of my musical journey, from believing, financially supporting, and advocating for myself too.


Even growing up there was really no support that fostered growth and encouraged individuality. 


Apart from a few cheerleaders at U of T there was not an available support system for me.. and so Marigold was born! MMP is the support system I wish I had as a racialized black youth participating in music extracurriculars/music education.


I am passionate about helping young people become community leaders, organizers and just be able to participate in music
