Highlighting our youth poets: Truesdell Education Campus

NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 14th Annual Poetry Slam!. During the two-night culminating event of the fall season, each of the 27 schools DC SCORES serves had the opportunity to perform original poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members.

On the first night of the Slam!, Truesdell Education Campus' poet-athletes told the audience at Columbia Heights Education Campus what the future holds for them, including, "Dear future, I want to be rich and send my son to college" and, "Dear future, I want to become a nurse who helps people in pain." Check out Truesdell's performance on stage!
