Inspiration:
Dequadray W.

Dequadray is 15 years old and has been a member of the Jesse Draper Club for five years.  His favorite club activity is art because it gives him the opportunity to create anything he wants; when he grows up, he wants to be a graphic design artist.  He says that the BGCMA has helped him break out of his shell and make new friends that have impacted his life in a positive way.  For him, the best part of BGCMA is that it is a big family – “it is truly a place where love is present”.
