Erik Hamlet

Hamlet, a student from Parkville, Maryland, felt a jumble of emotions at the start of the Dreamer’s Academy. “I’m really excited I’m here, but I’m also kind of scared,” he said, adding that because he was chosen out of so many people, he feels a little more pressure to take advantage of the opportunity. For the past several summers this aspiring entertainer has been volunteering at a summer camp for mentally challenged kids.
