I went on stage, scared and confused, and one of their performers came up to me and said “you know why you are here, because you have a lot to say, so here is the microphone!” All of a sudden, I heard only the crowd. I could breathe air in my lungs, feeling the confidence as I exhaled. It was the greatest experience and a total confidence booster.”

Having a dedicated space that’s really well curated, or built or facilitated can make all the difference in [...] how willing and able you are to practice your art.
— UNITY Youth
Always a source of joy and tolerance and being in the moment with it, it felt really good to have that kind of community to back me up whenever I wanted to explore things, whenever I wanted to question things, whenever I wanted to show off my art form or learn from my missteps. Having that kind of safety net made me feel very comfortable and it was really one of the best things to happen to me during this phase of my life.
