The prize winner, Laura Mazon Franqui is a classical guitar performance Masters student at the Frost School of Music (University of Miami), an accomplished and experienced guitarist of Hispanic-Latino descent who arrived the United States from Cuba two years ago.

As a victorious moment which has engraved her name in the history of the Musical school, Laura Mazon uses her celebration of victory to empower all upcoming guitarist and female guitarists as she states. “I would like to encourage all the girls in this field that is most of the time male dominated to fight for what they believe in no matter how many NO’s they have to face.”

Given her career path as a musicologist, she envisions music as an art while she explains that “Art is my perspective of life, much more than a means of expression, it is my ultimate form of existence.”
