The Young Empowered Self Advocates (YES!) hosted their 6th annual “YES! We Have Talent” Talent Show on March 23rd, 2019. The talent show was founded on the premise of building self-confidence. The first talent show was held in March of 2013 with six performers. It was not focused on talent, but on building one’s self confidence. That first show was a success and has been held every March since, growing every year.
To get on a stage and be in front of an audience, for many people, is not an easy task. It can create anxiety and a feeling of discomfort for many. There were 19 performers this year showcasing singing, dancing, and other talents.
