Everyone works hard during practices and is so energized to put on their best performance.
Through the OLI Program, Nena has realized that she shouldn’t overwhelm herself and never give up! This positive thinking has helped her get through school and come so far in life! She likes being part of Wiky since its a peaceful and friendly place. Nena looks up to her mom since she encourages her to attend school and build a bright future for herself!
Keep up the good work Nena, we can’t wait to see you perform on stage in Toronto!!
