Hawaii Performing Arts Festival changed my life. I have become a better singer, actor, dancer, and person thanks to the faculty I’ve worked with here. This festival showed me that I could do what I love and make a career out of it, as well as preparing me for my career. I owe the festival so much for teaching me how to be a performer.Becca E.
