Hello! My name is Ruby Kodis and I am a first year student in the theater department at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. I was so happy when I found out that I’d been accepted, because it’s been my dream since I was little to train for 4 years and develop my skills. DCPS unfortunately does not fully fund the school, so we have to raise money to pay for the theater expenses. No matter how big or small, any amount of money that you donate would be contributing to this wonderful family of very talented people.
