Young Artist Spotlight
Manuela Mejia joined the Young Artist Development Program as a shy 6th grader during the 2016-2017 school year. She came in with a beautiful, bubbly spirit and a love for dance. Manuela gravitated to YADP Elite A-list member and Jr. Mentor, Genelly Nunez because of her dance abilities and similar bubbly spirit. She began to glean from Genelly learning technique and timing. Her hard work and dedication landed her a spot in the YADP Elite performance group along with 2nd and 3rd year YADP veterans. Manuela challenged herself to do some singing, songwriting, and creative writing in YADP's Spring Sessions.
Manuela returned to YADP ready to work for the 2017-2018 school year! She secured her spot, once again, in the YADP Elite Performance group because of her continued hard work and dedication to YADP. Manuela exudes confidence as she takes the stage which shows significant growth since last year. Not only is she excelling in her performances, but with the confidence and work ethic gained in YADP, she is excelling in her academics. She is a model student (honor roll), an awesome friend, and a talented performer!
We are so EXCITED to see what the future holds for Manuela,
the sky is the limit! Manuela Mejia, YADP Salutes you!
