“I’ve been hearing about Turnaround Arts for a while now and I’m incredibly thrilled and honored to be able to take part. Lives can be transformed by art and music, theater and dance, but they can also be transformed by the Humanities: by writing and storytelling, by public speaking and the heroes of history. I can’t wait to watch as students find their voice.”
