I often volunteer in the DreamFields Project of Skagit Valley; an effort to keep Mount Vernon migrant students in school by using the arts as a means to share their dreams and struggles.

Many of these migrant students work in the local berry fields of Skagit Valley where they are unseen and unheard, but thanks to the DreamFields Project their inspiring stories are brought forward so as to educate and unify the community.

For the "Our Community" project, a group migrant students came together to compile a collection of original songs about the difficulties they encounter as migrant youth. Their goal was to inspire their community and collect donations from the album to support their own philanthropic initiatives.
