"A person without self-expression is a person without personal freedom"- Robin S. Our lives are emotional rollercoasters with endless experiences that make up who we are. Therefore, having the ability to express oneself is important to our liberty and our creativity. Children are the future of our world and we are here to help children express themselves because not only is being academically prepared important but being able to be socially ready is as well. I love what we do at Learn to Express and I am super excited to see what our future holds in this organization! Some fun facts about me is that I enjoy learning new cultures and doing karaoke with my sister.
