“GBH taught me that I don’t have to keep everything inside. They have taught me that my point of view is okay, because you are you and you are beautiful.”

I was born in Trinidad and live in Brooklyn, NYC. Currently at Brooklyn High School of the Arts, I like to sing, dance, act, write songs, play soccer, and swim. When I auditioned in September 2014, I came in very shy and quiet. Through GBH, I have been able to connect with people going through similar struggles that I am, making me more open, confident, and strong. GBH is now my second home. Everyone is so open and welcoming that for the first time in my life, I feel confident in being outspoken. I feel confident sharing my feelings and songs without being judged.
