Usman: What are You thankful for?

"A Year Fashioned of Dreams"

As every year draws to a close, I look back on the many amazing, people, adventures, and opportunities I am so grateful for!

2014 has been my busiest and most rewarding year yet! From my first year as the youngest Senior TED Fellow, opening the stage for 2 main TEDGlobal conferences in Vancouver and Brazil,  a feature on the NPR's famous tiny desk concert, many TEDx performances all over the United States, to the amazing opportunities that arose from Coke Studio in Pakistan. A special thanks to my school, Berklee College of Music for their ongoing support, recording of my orchestral piece Blue Moon Waltz, and presenting a special reunion with Preston Reed at the BPC.

I am grateful for everything, and everyone who has been part of this journey.  

Each moment I am living my art, telling stories through animated films, performance, and music.

This was a year fashioned of dreams.
