Greetings! My name is Ari Jackson, and I am proud to announce I am a 1st-year 10th grader at Duke Ellington’s theatre department. Theatre has opened up my voice in so many ways and has given me the chance to be me. Ever since the summer intensive program, I learned that it is my job and other young aspiring actors’ job to speak up and use their voice. Not only does theatre aid to the social justice movement, but it also brings people together in the hardest of times. On my rigorous journey at Duke, I want to gain confidence and skill. To begin, I need your help!!! It would be great if you could donate any amount of money to help me and the other students in the theatre department continue to do its lovely productions, many thanks.
