Ny’Laela is in fifth grade at Stedman Elementary School. She has participated in Opening Act activities and says her experiences have helped her become a better communicator. Her newly-developed skills have helped her make friends and have more deep and meaningful conversations with her family. She has learned to manage her emotions, which includes being more patient with her little sister, whom she loves dearly. When Ny’Laela grows up, she wants to be in a profession that helps others.
We believe the communication skills she is developing through Opening Act will help her reach her goals.
Life really does imitate art! Sophia and Zoe are friends in real life and they chose to portray friends on stage at Opening Act’s 2023 Showcase in a performance entitled “What’s Your Story?”.
Sophia - When hen Sophia started with Opening Act, she was shy and reluctant to participate in reading and writing projects in our workshops. We took her under our wing helped her become more comfortable. Now Sophia memorizes scripts and recites lines like a pro! Her grandmother cried happy tears when she saw Sophia perform and noted her remarkable transformation.
Zoe - Zoe was so nervous when she started with Opening Act that she considered quitting. Instead, with encouragement, she has become a magnificent storyteller that exudes confidence. Zoe surprised her mom at Opening Acts’s 2023 Showcase by reading a beautifully written tribute skillfully expressing the humor, joy and love in her heart. When she grows up, she wants to be a singer and she is developing her vocal skills through Opening Act workshops.
