Lasara Kalloo, 10, puts in the hard work to become musician, vet

TT – Lasara Kalloo wants to be a musician and a veterinarian.

She already knows that she’ll have to dedicate a lot of time to learn about both fields.

After all, Lasara’s parents, Camille and Sherwin, always remind her that it’s possible to achieve anything once you’re a hard worker and patient.

So daily, you can find Lasara watching animal videos on YouTube or practising the four instruments she plays – the steelpan, drums, keyboards and recorder.

“A dream does not become reality through magic…it takes sweat, determination and lots of hard work. With God on your side, anything is possible,” said Lasara, 10, who lives in Marabella.

A standard four student at San Fernando TML, Lasara has been singing since the age of four.

Over the past five years, she has become more active in music groups at the Susumacahar Presbyterian Church, in San Fernando.
