"Drama gives me the chance to work with different people. I built social skills throughout the process. I ended up analyzing more than I ever did and this has helped me to use the same method especially in my literary class, like English and Social Studies […] Drama class is different from regular class because we’re able to express our thoughts and emotions not on paper but by using our bodies with full range of motion.”
