"I always had the dream of attending Duke Ellington School of the Arts, but didn't think I was good enough. Ms. Henson encouraged me,and showed me how to put a portfolio and application together. Now I'm in the Museum Studies department at Duke Ellington. I'm doing photography, video, interactive media, exhibiting my work at the Smithsonian Institution, and all while I'm in the 9th grade! Thanks, Ms. Henson for believing in me."
