I am an arts advocate. The arts are vital for my education. They empower and inspire. The arts are necessary for my development as a person. They help me to be open-minded, empathetic, and creative. The arts improve my community and my world because they generate and captivate. I will speak up for the arts because every person, no matter their background, deserves to be unique, blissfully playful, and confident. This is our education. Our voice. Our arts. And this is why I am an arts advocate.
