The moment that changed things for me was when I wrote an essay about the experience I had at [Berklee], which in the late s was still very backward regarding gender equality. I wrote about some of the difficulties my friends and I had faced at the school and, to my great surprise, The Boston Globe ran it.

That one article changed policies at the school.
