"April Singleton, a sophomore at the University of Delaware, is an exceptional leader committed to providing a means for youth in underserved communities to develop stronger foundations for success by expanding their social and emotional learning. Her immersion in an ongoing dance/theatre project at the University of Delaware has informed her use of the arts in social and emotional learning. As a member of the Women of Consequence production that brought to life women of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, April researched and embodied the life of Harriet Wilson, presenting her life and struggles in writing and in movement. In addition to performing over 30 times as Wilson, April served as one of eight Teaching Artists, presenting a follow-up workshop entitled Dancing a Legacy at 10 Delaware schools and a summer enrichment program. April is creatively triangulating her concentration in Social Entrepreneurship, her leadership in the Delaware Innovation Fellows program, and her deep involvement in Women of Consequence to prepare for and pursue a career based on community activism and social change."
