WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Words cannot express how thankful I am that you joined us at Walter Williams High School to perform your 1 woman play.  The reactions of the students was amazing—some of the students have never seen anything like your performance and it was transformative and life-changing for them! It was a transformative experience for me, as well. 

Your message is powerful. Please, please continue to share.  And thank you for sharing your gift with us. The impact you have is amazing. 

I’ve signed your petition to help get you to NY.  

Again, thank you for sharing your gift! 

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
