Leadership Academy has literally been the best experience of my life. I have come to truly love each and every one of the students I have gotten to work with.
Some days I wake up and have thoughts about not attending school, but then I remember Academy. I have a responsibility to my students. They are counting on me. I look forward to being with them and helping them. So I get up and get ready.
Working on the One Acts with Jada and Nikisha was so amazing. We all worked so hard to help our actors develop and grow. They are incredible kids with such pure talent, but they needed guidance to truly bring the piece to life. Being a part of that process made me feel so proud.
I am also much more aware of what is riding on my academic work at school. Knowing that if I fail a class it could ruin my chance of staying involved with Academy really shocked me into taking more responsibility for myself. I’ve never worked so hard in my life to keep my grades on point.
