Hello family and friends, this is Aniya Newsome. As you all probably know, I attend Duke Ellington High School for the Arts, a phenomenal arts school in Washington, DC. It allows me to not only grow academically, but artistically as well. I am in the Theatre Department at my school and I absolutely love it! Theatre gives me the chance to build skills I will need in the real world and allows me to feel empowered. The pandemic has effect us all in different ways but it has hit my department pretty hard. Like other businesses we missed out on a lot of funding for the department because of the pandemic. But you can help. With your contribution you will be able to help with funding for our fanatic future productions, amazing virtual master classes, and so much more. Also, don’t forget to come to our virtual March for the Arts Event via Facebook live on October 24, 2020 to support the department, there will be activities and games! I love you so much and thanks for your consideration and continuous support.
