Here's Sojourner enjoying the work of her peers. She also received a 2012 gold medal for her poetry.
 
I met many talented teens today and saw first-hand their amazing work. Here is Sojourner and I this afternoon outside the Art.Write.Now 2012 National Exhibition which is showcasing more than 500 National Gold Medal winning works of art and writing from the 2012 Alliance for Young Artists and Writers Awards.
