Jerice’s Playlists

Jerice Banola, Staff Writer

Music is an integral part of the lives of many. It motivates. It relaxes. It helps.
However, the amount of music available to us is as vast as the oceans of the world that we have to rely on recommendations from others or learn to explore and discover our different tastes in music.
