"It is with great pride that I attend your performances. I am always left overwhelmed with emotion and anxiety for the positive feedback that will be sent your way for your work. I feel Universal Self is becoming such a wonderful tool for you to process your own growth in front of the world while sharing your knowledge and political stances in many contexts. Whether it is Hip Hop or Martial Arts, you are so precise with your movement and dialogue. I am impressed, yet again, and hope to see more progress with this stellar script and phenomenal theatrical display. As always, you have my support and encouragement to keep pushin! Stay focused on displaying the mastery of this adaptation of Universal Self, as you did this evening, for the rest of this run and this competition is yours. I am so proud of you." --Carlos Iro Burgos, Artist & Educator at CUNY NCC.
