“I have been struck by the strength and wisdom of young people over the last year, despite all the challenges they have had to face. I believe we need to hear their hopes, dreams, and experiences; they are our future and inspiration.
The One Minute Monologue Competition gives them the platform they deserve and help us to see the world in a new or different way!
Please support and encourage the young people with whom you work to enter… I can’t wait to hear and see their work.”
