Engaging Possibilities in Hamilton

Our Emerging Hamilton Team

Wendy Ferguson

Leader

I attended the workshop at the ISAAC conference. I loved making the stories. I started attending the Sunday sessions in September 2016. I was excited to get the chance to go to Hamilton and be part of the Engaging Possibilities workshops. I am working to become a leadership team member. I was in charge of the bar at the Come to the Edge Performance. I love coming to drama and working together with everyone.
