Sometimes In Order To Shine, We Just Need A Different Light

My Face is My Canvas Emulation #13

The title of this photo is one of the key themes behind the play that I'm involved in this weekend with my school. The entire cast is made up of students with disabilities and is performed in black light. I've been working for the last 3 months on props, helping the students practice and tonight is the big night. We had a dress rehersal this morning and it was such an amazing feeling to see all these students who have had to struggle to fit in, shine on stage.

This play, is quite possibly the highlight of any job I've ever had. To be able to work alongside teachers, education assistants, and students with various levels of ability and create this amazing, inspiring performance is incredible. I can't even express the pride I have in my school and everyone involved. I'm hoping I can take a couple pictures tonight backstage and share them with you tomorrow.

wish us luck!
