Kharys Fowlkes, 10
What does the name YASS: Young Artistic Strong Sisters mean to you?
I think it means to be strong, to be young women and that we have power just as much as men.
What is the most important thing you’ve learned from being in GLOW in Motion?
I’ve learned that GLOW is like my family and it’s taught me more about how to move my body.
Which of the pieces in the show is your favorite? Why?
Greatest because it says all these things about being a lion and that you’re just the greatest by just being yourself.
What do you hope to be when you get older? Why?
I want to be a fashion designer because I draw a lot of things and I love art and I can incorporate some of the things that I like and put them in my designs. I want to be a dance instructor, too, because I make up so many dances and I just want to teach them to other people.
Why is dance important to you?
You can do a lot of things with dance and you can be creative with it and you can just express yourself in different ways.
What advice would you give a girl your age who wasn’t feeling confident?
“You are unique and special in your own way and you can do anything that you dream is possible.”
How do you show strength in your performance and in your life?
I improve and if someone is giving me criticism that I need, I just take it in and fix what I’m not doing correctly.
