A transformation story: from ASTEP student to volunteer artist

JP Pimentel moved to Homestead Florida in 2006. To help keep him busy, and meet new people, his mother enrolled him in the first ASTEP Art-in-Action Experience for high school students. Since then JP and ASTEP have been inseparable. He has attended every summer program, has been a part of the ASTEP Group Leadership program and has volunteered his talents at countless community events. Now, JP’s love for the arts has taken him to even higher heights; graduating from Homestead Senior High with top honors and coming to New York City to attend AMDA.

The following video is an interview with JP taken in 2009 at the ASTEP Art-in-Action Experience.
