Participant Spotlight - Ezekiel McShay
Meet Ezekiel, a valued member of our Winter Strengths cohort. A 20-year-old from Washington, DC and graduate of H.D. Woodson High School, Ezekiel brings a fun and upbeat energy to the program with his positivity and enthusiasm. In his free time, Ezekiel enjoys meeting new people, watching his favorite football and basketball teams, and listening to music. He is also a very talented artist and enjoys creating his own cartoons and comics.
Ezekiel's favorite part of the BroadFutures program has been stepping up and taking on more of a leadership role whenever needed. He also reflected that one of the greatest takeaways from our program was the verbal communication tips from our drama instructor, Raymond Caldwell.
Ezekiel, thanks for being such a great addition to the cohort. We are excited to hear about your future success and accomplishments!
