“Theatre of Transformation Academy inspired me to believe again in both individual and collective human potential, to tap into their humanity to transform the world. ToTA inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and embrace my potential to change the world (in whatever small way it is). It has acted as a platform to bring forth the performer in me. This faith and hope which is ignited within grows into believing in your fellows and ultimately humanity as a whole.”
“You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.”
