April 2009, to instructor Fred Rappaport:
Hi Fred, this is Derick McConico and I was involved in one of your WGF workshops about 2-3weeks ago. I must say that I had a lot of fun working with you and others from the program. It helped me tell a story that some people might not relate to unless they can go through it. I learned to write a screenplay and format it in a way that didn’t make me mad and want to give up. I think this program has a positive effect on kids that want to be someone and not follow the negative stuff around them.
