I learned the idiom, "Hard Work Pays Off," when I had my first trumpet audition in the sixth grade for the Cramer Hill Rough Riders Drum & Bugle Corp. Fear ran through my young veins, as I prepared for that audition. It wasn't until my wise Grandmother Wagner explained, "If you work hard and do your best, you've done your job!" 120% was my motto and I ended up as the youngest 1st soprano in the corp.
