11th Grade Student Earns International Trip

Nelson Mandela said it best. “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to man in his language, that goes to his heart.” My’Jia Brown, a junior at Horizon, has done just that by touching the hearts of others through her voice. She recently received an invitation to participate in the International Festival of Language and Culture (IFLC) for her submission of the song, “Halleluiah!”

According to the IFLC, My’Jia will participate in three events in New York, Washington D.C., and Toronto from the end of April through early May 2019. The International Festival of Language and Culture is hosting their 17th Annual IFLC. “The IFLC is a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the multicultural needs of those living in the United Sates. The event showcases cultural performances of students from around the world.”

Overall, we’re very proud of the hard work and dedication My’Jia has put forth and we wish her much success at future events. She will also be representing our school at the Concept Schools Network Art & Language Festival, in Chicago this month. A special thanks to Mrs. Oramas for helping guide her along the way.
