I am so excited that I got accepted into Duke Ellington! So far my experience has been amazing. I made a lot of friends, I've met a lot of teachers, and the students above my grade have been so nice and funny. In the virtual environment, it has been challenging but I am still working my hardest to keep my grades up. Performing is a great experience. We have been reading Hamlet, Fences, and learning about being young, gifted, and black. I would appreciate your support in our annual fundraiser. Any donation would be a greatly appreciated.
