My name is JaNiah Cooper I’m 17 years old from the southside of chicago and I attend The Chicago High School for the Arts. I simply love the magazine & love the representation of African-Americans in dance & I hope to see more! This is a recent solo performed and choreographed by me. This piece is about the spirtrebirth of oneself, the journey of a becoming a better & hopeful person through the midst of the common problems of the world.
