Rashida uses music as an escape. Whether it’s a breath of A Day to Remember’s lyrics or a mosh session with Miss May I, music is always her outlet. There is no better feeling than seeing the band in flesh, whose written words you’ve lived in for months. Her easy ability to recognize faults, even in things she enjoys and hobby as a writer led her to realize that music journalism was a natural course of action to take. She is always on the lookout for uprising bands who have potential or evaluating what changes the bands she love have made. Her favorite genres include: post hardcore, hardcore, metalcore, alternative, rock, pop punk, acoustic, and industrial/experimental.
