YD's 4th annual Underground Expressions was a great success! More than 100 community members showed up and contributed to a positive and encouraging space. New relationships were built and old ones were made stronger.
Dopey and Betty hosted a variety of artists throughout the night, including the talented first-time performers Aklil Noza, Hanna Abdrabo and Kiduse Gezahegn.
The night was filled with new and old YDers and positive vibes. And Heran Genene was surprised by the youth as they expressed their thoughts and feelings about her as a mentor as she officially stepped down as YD's Program Manager. Naomi Amanuel was introduced as the new Program Manager and the night ended off with a classic YD Open Mic.
It was a great way to start off the YD year!
