My name is Deriq Graves and I am in my second year of college. I am twenty-two years old. My goal is to be a great actor and a story writer.
One thing I like about the IDEAL program is the costume party, that was a lot of fun hanging out with good friends, dressing up in costumes, and playing games like UNO. IDEAL has helped me by making great friends and having people by my side who care about me and support me in my goal to become an actor and story writer. My time at college has been great thanks to them.
