Dear Richard and Mica,

I recently auditioned for the Yale School of Drama and they take 16 people every year out of about 1500 try-outs. I practiced for days and days to prepare for this opportunity. Well about a week ago, I got an e-mail saying I was one of the 16 to get ACCEPTED! I am so thrilled because this is my dream come true. I want to greatly express my gratitude for all that you have done for me from Brookdale Community College all the way through my degree at Atlantic Conservatory of which I graduated in December 2017.

I’m so thankful to have performed at the 20th anniversary of the Hadar program. You have fixed my crooked smile, my confidence and my appearance. How lucky I am–a young man that was trying to escape the gutter and rise to the top. And now I have made it to the top theatre school in the US!!!

I’m e-mailing this to say I’m truly thankful and so grateful for all your support. You helped me get here. This is the result of believing in someone who believes they can reach their goals! This is because of the trust of the Hadar Foundation program.
