My name is Katerina Sawyer and I’m an aspiring doctor trying to make it through my last years of high school.

I  attend Awty International School in Houston, TX, where I try to juggle my music, my job, and my studies and still find time to volunteer.

I’ve had the dream of being a doctor since I was five. I love working with children  and with the seniors  and as a future doctor  I want to see all of my patients healthy and happy – I can not treat them yet, but I can help to bring smile to their faces in some other way. When I was 11 years old I founded the Polka Dots Project and

Polka Dots . We Bringing Cheers Where Cheers are Needed Most

recently we celebrated 7 years of service with a performance at Methodist Hospital in Houston  learn more about Polka Dots  If you want to know more check out the volunteering page or connect with us on facebook  https://www.facebook.com/polkadotsproject/

My family is first generation emigrants but I am living the american dream. I am lucky to have a job that I like; I have been performing with the German band Das Ist Lustig for the past seven years  all over the state of Texas.   As a part of my job in the band, I engage with the audience and get them to participate.  This means that I get the opportunity to dance and play with many wonderful children. The enthusiasm and pure joy that I receive when we interact is priceless to me. Check out my work history .

I know I have what it takes to fulfill my dream and become  pediatrician as I am familiar with the hard work and dedication. I started my journey as a street musician  at the French Quarters  in New Orleans but I ended up performing in Carnegie Hall  and at the World Saxophone Congress –  See more about my musical journey
