My name is Meaghan Zaremba. I am 31 years old. At the age of 5, I was in a car accident that crushed my skull, and as a result I have lived most of my life with a brain injury that limits my abilities.
The doctors told my mother that I would be a vegetable, and would never be able to walk, feed or dress myself. I suffered from constant seizures and I had to deal with learning disabilities.
Music saved my life. For the past 15 years I have studied, piano, flute, vocal, and have taken many theory classes. Music re-wired my brain and kept it active and healthy. Today I drive a car, work part-time, manage my own money, and do all the things that normal people do. I am thankful to my mother for never giving up on me, and I’m thankful to Tisho and Mary Balinov for believing that every child or person with disabilities can learn and heal with the power of music. I want to establish a music room at Tisho’s Music Academy which will fund music lessons for people like me….young or old… be able to experience what I have experienced. This room will be called “THE MEAGHAN ZAREMBA MUSIC ROOM”. Anyone with any type of disability will be able to attend free music classes, and they will be provided with free instruments and music books. I believe that this is what I was meant to do in life. My life was spared for this reason, and I want to make a difference and be a role model to people like me.
Please help me raise money so I can fulfill my dream and purpose in life. Any amount small or large will help. Everyone at some point in their life has known someone with a disability. Imagine the joy of that someone, to be able to experience music.
