Roosevelt students learn in an environment that is steeped in the arts. Open Mics, drama classes, and creative writing opportunities encourage students to express themselves, in high school and the rest of their lives. Roosevelt graduate Lily Myers, 2011, was featured in the College National Poetry Slam at Barnard College this year. Thanks to upworthy.com for sharing this video, which garnered more than 2 million views. Check out more of Myers’ work at http://shapeswemake.tumblr.com/.
