Pursue creative exploration!
Three years ago, Jen began attending the Youth Arts Workshop as a fourth-grader when her older brother volunteered as a classroom assistant. When she first joined, she felt like didn’t belong at school and was unsure of herself. Today, Jen is a twice published author (her own book Fish and one through the program), stellar program recruiter who brings her friends to Asian Arts Initiative, and most importantly, has found her creative voice. Jen's experience is reflective of many of our youths' experience in the Youth Arts Workshop.
