Janeth Marquez became one of the highlights of the evening due to her voice on bullying and the strength it takes to rise above it. She received and overwhelming round of applause and snaps.

Shaena Johnson also performed her own work on self development in a world that only seeks to bring you down.

“The poems were so moving, Santi Rivera’s poem was my favorite,” said senior Daniela Mendez
