Teaching Drama

High School Drama Changes Students’ Lives

Alexandria Onderdonk-Milne is a student involved with a Media Studies program through the Albany TimesUnion newspaper. She shares an inspirational story about her transformation painfully shy to freshman to a more-confident senior. The catalyst? Drama, of course!

Through Drama, I have learned so much and I have changed so much. I am no longer “the sweetest freshman” who spoke quietly, and said little but was always willing to help. I am now the senior and, though I don’t feel very talented, I feel more at home in Drama than anywhere. In Drama you learn maturity when you need it, sharing, and family. You also spend time with people who may be able to help you improve yourself or see things from a different perspective.
