On the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, a trip to my high school, where Dr. King spoke during his only trip to Seattle in 1961. GHS was the first non-white majority high school in Seattle, as commemorated in a new hallway mural project that traces Seattle’s Central District history — and Garfield High School’s place within it.

Nicole Ng, 18, New York: One of my regrets when I graduated from high school in June was that I stopped oil painting after freshman year. I’ve painted since I was six and dreamt of being an artist for many years, yet in high school, I put aside painting to focus on school and other activities—those that I believed would “get me somewhere.” Even though I loved what I did, I rarely stopped working endlessly towards my next goal.
In the eyes of those around us, it’s “okay” for a kid to dream. But my dreams of becoming an artist fizzled out—because of outside pressures, words of adults around me, and my own self-doubt.
It’s often hard to just stop, relax and find an outlet for our passions. If I weren’t afraid, I would oil paint instead of always working towards my next goal. I don’t see myself becoming an artist in the future, but now I know, in college and beyond, I’ll always make time to do what I love, relax, and just paint.
"That little girl is leaning in… she’s bold and audacious," said curator Holly Pyne Connor, of the first painting.
