African Dance / Drummers: Determinations and Goals

Amanda McMichael, 16: to finish school and go to college and become a successful graphic artist.

Chandra Short, 29: to have 10 clients a week in the salon: 5 weaves, 3 press/curls, and 2 relax/curls; to have clients in abundance, for my cousin to receive the Gohonzon in August, to spend more time with my local/ long distance family, for my mother to be enlightened/receive the Gohonzon, for high self esteem, and for cash flow in abundance.

Corey M. Wittenborn, 34: to realize a life better than I can dream.

Daisbeily Toribio, 15: 1. To make friends that like me (as a person). 2. To return to dancing and performing. 3. To continue practicing my faith and to keep it strong. 4. To have a celebration of who I am, of a community of people coming together, and of the art of dancing. 5. To have a better relationship with people. 6. To help others help themselves! 7. To help a friendís skin problem get better. 8. To continue being more of who I am. 9. To help the environment. 10. To heal my sprained ankle and never let it affect my life in the future. 11. To help my sister see that clothes do not make confidence, that it will not keep one going tomorrow. 12. To do something healthy, away from the ways of the world we created (media, society, etc.).
