PRECIOUS PEREZ, 19
Precious Perez is a classically trained pop R&B vocalist/songwriter currently pursuing a double major in Music Education and Vocal Performance at Berklee College of Music. She is the front woman of a band called Precious Moments, and is set to release an EP comprised of mainly Spanish songs this summer. She currently serves as the community relations intern for an MIT-based startup developing an AI app for the blind called Virtual Collaboration Research Inc. In the spring of 2018, Perez served as the education and community engagement intern for the Handel and Haydn Society, the oldest performing arts organization in the United States.
In 2018, while studying abroad in Valencia, Spain in the fall of 2017, Perez received a certificate of community engagement and leadership for her service as a Senior UN Ambassador for Disability Awareness and a plaque for outstanding achievement, leadership, and community engagement. In April of 2019, Perez received an Urban Service Award from Berklee for outstanding volunteer work with The Movement, Berklee’s community service through performing arts organization.
Perez’s goal is to make a difference through doing what she loves and showing the world that blind people are as capable as everyone else. She hopes to inspire future generations to pursue their dreams and be successful, because she knows that anything is possible, and giving up is never an option. As a singer/songwriter and/or music educator, Perez will be able to make a difference by using her reach as a Puerto Rican Spanish speaker to crush stereotypes by sharing her experiences across cultures and defying expectations. She is confident that she can lead, achieve, and be the one who alters the way people see.
