Welcome to our newest assistant to the International Board of Directors, Kristin Gunasekera from Area 6! Here are a few tidbits about Kristin.
How long have you been a member of Harmony, Inc.?
I have been a member of Harmony since 2008. I am the tenor section leader for Sisters of Sound, our music committee chairman, and I sing with the quartet In A Chord. I’m the Area 6 Convention Chairman, Area 6 Youth Coordinator, and founder and President of Unaccompanied Minors. I served as Sisters of Sound’s Vice President for one year and as their President for four years.
What would you like to accomplish as Youth Programs Coordinator?
As the Youth Coordinator, my goal is to be an advocate for and support to our current youth membership. In addition, I would like to help Harmony, Incorporated develop ways to expand our youth membership. I am the mother of five children, ages 10-16 years old. I sing with my two daughters, Scarlett and Daphne, and with my mother, Mary Ann Cantwell, in Sisters of Sound. My daughters have been members of Harmony, Inc. for seven years, since they were 6 and 8 years old, and it is their experiences that encouraged me to take a more active role with youth in Harmony.
Now for the really important question, pancakes or waffles?
I prefer waffles, but enjoy both.
