Michael(President) and I met when I was looking for a male mentor for one of my grade 6 students who was having issues with the law and had no male role models in his family. Michael talked about his current interests and projects – his music, playwriting, art etc. and we have been friends since. As a retired school principal, I looked at participating in TAP as an opportunity to reconnect with kids in a creative way. I have always been passionate about children and the arts and TAP became the perfect venue to combine both of my interests. I am very excited and look forward to the upcoming Jamaican adventure.
