Michelle Khalid of Duke University needs your input in creating a busker app

My name is Michelle Khalid and I am a student at Duke University.
I am reaching out because I am taking a class in which we are trying to create an app for street performers and pedestrians. We are currently in our brainstorming phase, and I was wondering if you would be willing to take 5 minutes to answer a couple of questions to help us understand the benefits and challenges of being a street performer. We are hoping to use use this information to create an app that can better meet the needs of street performers around the US.
If you are interested in participating, please contact me directly at mashaim.khalid@duke.edu – I will send you a short questioner to fill out.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. 
Thank you so much for your time!
