"YoungArts Week felt like a journey into a different dimension - I have never been so immersed in passion and talent. It was astounding, heartfelt, truly inspirational." 

"It was perhaps the most magical moment of my life. It's very hard to even think of beginning how to sum up how much YoungArts affected me. I learned so much."

Carissa Chen (2015, Writing)

Javier Spivey (2015, Theater + U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts)
