Her success at the Concurso internacional de piano Rotary Club Palma Ramon Llull, Mallorca (Spain 2013) led to concert tours in Spain, and performance opportunities with the Baleares Symphony Orchestra.

Recently she won Third Prize in the main category of Roma International Piano Competition and the Phillip Crawshaw Memorial Prize at the Royal Overseas League Competition. Currently based in the UK, she is with Talent Unlimited and is also a Piano Fellow of the Philharmonia Martin Musical Scholarship Trust on the Emerging Artists Programme.
