Theory dreams of making it big as an R&B musician — and wants to win her first Grammy within five years. It’s a dream she’s had since childhood, but she took a detour after high school and enlisted the US Army. Soon after, Theory was deployed to Afghanistan, where she served as a combat photographer.
Music has been a refuge through some of the toughest times in Theory's life, like her tour in Afghanistan.
Now Theory’s back in Philly, driving with Lyft, and pursuing her music career full steam ahead. She hit a speed bump recently, when the promise of a record deal fell through. To help her get back on track, we set up a surprise meeting with someone who could share savvy career advice and wisdom. And that someone was none other than Theory’s childhood hero: the triple-platinum, Grammy winning R&B artist, Ashanti.
In episode 5 of Pick Me Up, Theory shares her story. Follow along as Theory moves toward her dream of being a full-time R&B musician post-deployment.
