My name is Katie Rine I live in Columbia, Maryland. I am a senior in high school and this is currently my first year taking music tech. As my first year in music tech I hope to learn how to create my own beats. I am taking nursing classes to become a nursing assistant after high school. The type of music I listen to most is R&B and hip-hop. Music has had a big influence on me because it helped me through tough times and hardships. A lot of rappers have influenced me by hearing their stories and I felt like I could relate to some of the stories. My website is influenced by Baltimore because I was always in inner city Baltimore and found a love for the culture there since it's not like any other city out there.
