About the Black Coffee Scholarship

"It is such a blessing for me to have this collaboration with Bridges for Music, it started small with workshops and now we have a scholarship with SAE in our name, what's great about it is it's for someone with a disability, these are people that are often not taken seriously, they are part of our society and in most cases no one really gives them an opportunity or listens to what they have to say, for us to be involved in such a powerful program it makes us so happy”
