I have been waiting for the results of my audition for Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Butterflies formed in my stomach as I walked out of Safeway, my mom told me not to yell but read the email from Ms. Barbara Powers. As, I read the email I begin to scream on the inside. No one will know the joy I felt inside. I'm still in ah. Me and my mommy started screaming when we got in the house. My talent and attitude got me to the place I always wanted to go. Finally, I can say "My hard work paid off".
