The STEM Academy @ Bartlett is pleased to announce eighth grade student Yiming Low's monologue “My Culture" has been chosen for publication in Theatrefolk's book to be released later this year. Recently, Theatrefolk asked for BIPOC (Black, Indigenious, and People of Color) student writers to share their voices and perspectives through their original monologue submissions. Along with the honor of being a published playwright, Low will receive
a prize of $100 for her monologue.
Dr. Jimmie Cave, STEM principal, says, “Yiming is an outstanding student and wonderful
person. She has been a model of excellence throughout her middle school career at The STEM
Academy. I am extremely proud of her and I am looking forward to what she will accomplish in
the future. Congratulations, Yiming!" Theatrefolk specializes in plays for schools and student performers. The company believes that theatre has an essential place in schools, having plays produced across Canada, the US, and England.
“I am a champion for every kid being the hero of the story, and I am incredibly proud Yiming has
made this a reality with the publication of her work for the world to see. Yiming proves middle
school kids can change the world. We cannot wait to watch others perform Yiming's
monologue," states Hannah Glass, The STEM Academy's Theatre Arts teacher.
