Yesterday, along with Harvard astronomer Priya Desai, Opera To Go!, and the Looking Glass Theater, I was invited to present "An Immigrant Kid's Story" to Creative Arts and Sciences school committees from all around the Metrowest suburbs of Boston. I had to encapsulate my 45-minute upper elementary program into a 20-minute condensed version, and was shocked by how nervous I was. To me, being around kids is an automatic stress reliever. Addressing grownups, even congenial, supportive ones, is another story altogether. Nonetheless, it was an honor to be included on such an impressive roster.
