From the variety of talent competitions, performing arts schools she was able to experience the passionate life and movements of an artist.
As she grew older, Paulaine delved into several music styles of classical, musical theater and jazz. She auditioned for the high school’s very own vocal jazz choir, there she become one with jazz. As she learned the rhythm and style, jazz became one the genres that influenced her sound. Paulaine was chosen to become one of Valencia High School’s student representatives at the All-State Jazz Festival, in addition to that, she was also awarded the National Downbeat Student awards for her outstanding solo performance at the Next Generation Jazz Festival. Since that wonderful event, Paulaine auditioned three colleges, with 2 acceptance invites and one wait listed, but her heart was set. Berklee College of Music would become the school of her dreams.
