Cristal Givens: Friend and Principal of Alchemy Music Academy
I first met Cristal when my husband and I moved to Texas from California. She was my mother’s neighbor and had a sweet daughter a year older than mine. I was so excited to meet another mom and schedule playdates for our girls! Fast forward 8 years and now Cristal has become not only a great friend, but also my creative working partner through Alchemy Music Academy! A year ago, she shared with me her idea to create a music school in Richardson that could provide a safe place for our girls to thrive creatively. She wasted no time and I admire her guts and tenacity to realize her dream. I’m just along for the ride!
