Carlos

Grade 10, Boston Arts Academy

CarlosCarlos is 16 years old and lives in East Boston. He is currently in the 10th grade at Boston Arts Academy. Carlos is most proud of how much his dancing has improved since starting high school, and how much he has grown as a person. Some of his accomplishments include performing in productions like The Wiz and The Lion King, getting honor roll every year since 6th grade, and dancing for two years being trained by BAA. Carlos is inspired by an artist named Young Verse on YouTube because of how he raps about real world problems. After hearing a rap about racism, Carlos was inspired to make a change by using his voice; it taught him to speak up about serious issues to help people anyway he can.
