I love our cultural shows –Diwali, LYNF, Carnival, Black Anthology, Spirit of Korea. I was part of Diwali every year with my dance team, and getting to see these performances come to life is a really cool experience. They are sold-out performances, and to see students write skits, choreograph dances, put together fashion shows and musical groups, and then perform all of these things in front of the community is really exciting. I always learned something new about a culture and community by attending, and am constantly impressed by the talent of our students and how much they love celebrating each other.
