Child, why don’t you talk?

“Every time you feel something flickering in your heart when you’re scared, think of that girl.”

At four-years-old, Amrita loses her voice. At age eleven, she finds her song. Congratulations to our “Sweet Dreams” StorySlam winner and Audience Favorite, Amrita. See her compete in the Grand Slam at the 15th Anniversary First Person Arts Festival!
