How MTVarts has helped/changed my life was helping me get out of my comfort zone. Being on that stage, with all those people watching you, can be kind of scary. I'm not going to lie, it was pretty scary the first time I did it. It also really helped my self-esteem a lot. I was one of those people who thought they couldn't do anything right, but once I got on stage, that all changed. MTVarts was the reason.
I have been in 2 shows, so far, with MTVarts. I was in The Little Mermaid Jr. I was given the honor of playing Alana, one of Ariel's sisters. I am now in the newest play, Aladdin Jr. I am playing the part of narrator 1. With both shows, I didn't get the parts I was trying for, but I know they assign roles that are perfect for each and every person who tries.
Thank you very much, MTVarts, for helping me with my self-confidence, forcing me out of my comfort zone and giving me the opportunity to be on stage, where I belong.

Being a part of a production like MTVarts makes me feel proud. When I hear people clapping for us, it makes me feel like I am part of something important. MTVarts makes me feel like more than just a little girl. When I am in practice or performing with the group, I feel like an actor, a dancer, and a singer. I love it.
MTVarts gives children like me a place to interact with some of the other children around here and make new friends. It is so fun to be in a group of girls who are all dancing and singing together. I was still friends with some of the people I met in last year's show, and this year I met even more people! I'm grateful that I get to be a part of this show.
