I feel so thankful to have had the arts in my school growing up, due to the personal nature in which it affected me as a child. The 'arts' were my thing. I struggled with math, science, and reading, and I was certainly no good at sports. It was music and art class where I had fun, tried new things, and left feeling good about myself. Had I not had this outlet, I would've been entirely lost and discouraged at school. To have arts in an academic setting made me realize that my skills and talents were valued. This kept me confident and motivated at school.
