Coming to London all alone at the age of 21 was a big step for me. Trinity Laban made me feel comfortable in the big city and offered me a spring board to a professional music world that I am now in. I was also privileged to receive scholarships from the college that covered my tuition fees. Most importantly, I had the opportunity to work with greatest masters and meet people that changed my life.Lana Trotovšek
