When Lucy came to Grow a Star in 2014, she was a very shy 12 year old, with dreams of one day becoming a professional musician. Suffering from an anxiety disorder, was one of several barriers she needed to navigate before she could even contemplate performing in front of crowds.
Through the Grow a Star program, Lucy was sponsored to attend a local music school, The Rock God Music School, where she attended singing lessons once a week. It wasn’t long before her talent was recognised and she was asked to join three other girls and form a group.
She went on to perform at several small events in her local area as both a soloist and with the group. Lucy has made lifelong friends through this journey and her parents have witnessed a change in her confidence and demeanour along the way.
Over the past five years Lucy has worked tirelessly on her singing and this has taken her from that shy 12 year old to a very confident 17 year old young woman who fronts her own music band, has released a number of songs on social media platforms and has supported major overseas acts performing in front of large crowds in major Sydney live venues.
Recently, Grow a Star nominated Lucy for the Channel 7 NSW/ACT Young Achievers Award. She was one of 4 finalists in the Award Category: QPRC Performing Arts Award.
Lucy was invited to attend a gala awards night at Doltone House in Sydney on 20th March 2020 before COVID-19 struck.
The awards were streamed online on the 11th September, and although Lucy did not win the category, it was a great achievement to make the final four.
Lucy is currently studying for a Certificate in Sound Production and Lighting.
