The ACT-SO team had a great time at the awards. It was amazing to see so many African-Americans gathered in one place not to discuss issues or problems, but simply to celebrate the magnificence of African-American youth.
Our local Gold medallist, Jor’Denay, didn’t medal at National despite a stunning performance, but she was chosen over dozens of her peers for one of five speaking roles during the awards ceremony. She had to rehearse intensely the rest of the weekend, but she made connections and got experience that will serve her well into the future.
