To whom it may concern, My name is Marshall Hoybook, and I recently posted my dream business on kickstarter.com. Over 10 years as a music educator and performer and an unmatched compassion for at-risk families make me the prime candidate to successfully establish this percussion studio for underprivileged students. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/402298112/percussion-studio-for-und... At any given time, my studio will have between 60 and 100 students, a quarter of whom will receive free lessons due to economic hardships. Through individual instruction, group lessons, concerts, and performances--students from low income families will get to experience music education like never before. Gifted musicians often never achieve great success because they are held back by financial constraints. Your contribution to my kickstarter can get us one step closer to helping students realize their potential! Please check out my kickstarter and share the link with others. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/402298112/percussion-studio-for-und... -- Sincerely, Marshall Hoybook

Aurora hails from New England and has a background in communications, systems management and economic development. She first realized her passion for nonprofits leveraging social media while working in web communications at MSF. She is incredibly excited to join the content team at Kiva and explore the juncture of technology and international development more thoroughly. She spent nearly a year working in Tanzania with students and was lucky enough to witness the spirit of small-scale entrepreneurship and how it impacts communities firsthand. She holds a BA from Princeton University where she concentrated in politics and was a member of the varsity swimming and diving team. Aurora is a long-suffering, occasionally jubilant, Arsenal fan and copes with being dog-less by volunteering at the SF SPCA.
