In 2008, Ssuuna was named YA National Artist of the Year.
The performer had an awesome personality and rapport with the audience and engaged all the students. The music was great!

His presentation enriched the lives of our students by teaching them a different language along with dance and music native to his country. He also taught the students about self-respect, discipline, and valuing different perspectives...Even after his program ended, students continued to talk about their time with him and the dances that they learned.
The kids came back to class following your assembly and someone said, "That was so cool!" and another student said, "That wasn't just cool, it was awesome!!"
