Hello, I’m one of the leader of the Sequoia High School Dream Club. Stacey worked with us to create some performances for the Dream Club’s annual dinner in the fall of 2016. It was the first time I ever worked with a devised theatre piece, so it was very challenging to help create the piece and perform it;however, i became was very happy with the way that Stacey was guiding us through the process. Thanks to her help we were able to create pieces that conveyed our club’s message.

After the dinner, I applied and was accepted as an intern for a Leadership through Devised Theatre program with Fuse. Through this program I was able to participate in leadership and theatre training workshops that helped me learn more about how to create a devise theatre piece and improve my leadership skills.

At the end of the internship, I was able to guide my own group through the process and create a successful performance that would share with our community the hardships undocumented students face.
