THE STORY:

Ophelia's Story

I had always been into Shakespeare. My whole life, my family and I would sit around the table together and read aloud a play. So going to CYS only furthered my interests. But what really benefitted me the most were the people who were a part of it. Before I got to CYS, I didn't take much risks in my acting. At CYS, I was able to take a risks in a place where I felt comfortable and supported. This was a place where I was able to explore what I was capable of and it tied me with a lot of really great people, who I do still see. I now walk a little taller and with more confidence, every day!

p.s. On the inside of my locker at school, I have a picture of all my friends from CYS and a poster that reads, "Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.” And it puts a smile on my face very single day.
