I have a student. His name is Sami. He’s a go-getter.
Last year, he was a stabilizing force on my theatre tech team.
This year, he is my improv partner, as he pops into my room during break and we do these quite creative improv sessions which are funny and enjoyable.
He signed on to be the producer/manager of my upcoming black box experimental piece.
He is an actor who will be in my future productions. No doubt.
He’s the type of kid you love to pick on simply because you love having him around.
Oh, and this eighteen-year-old is also a columnist at Arab News.
Yeah, pretty cool stuff. A couple weeks ago, he sent me an article he was writing and I gave him a few pointers. He goes off and sends it to Arab News who sent him a contract to be one of their opinion columnists.
How awesome is that?
His first piece “Sheltering Children from the Real World Only prepares them for Failure” was just published.
Check out this ARAB NEWS LINK to read it for himself.
Congrats, Sami. Well done!
Now get my show ready!
