I think that I was waiting for something structured and disciplined like that, and that’s why I feel like the arts are so important for children. I think that whether or not they go on to become a professional or use that experience in their future jobs, it’s going to enrich their lives in some way… it did that immediately for me.
I never experienced such structure in my life. EVER. And I think I was just craving it, and I immediately just held onto this.
