Black Little Mermaid steals the show.

arielSarah Mutombo,
Louisville, KY.

I attend Louisville Collegiate school, and in my 8th grade year I participated in middle school Musical: The Little Mermaid, Jr. I was a minority at this high-end private school. Going into auditions, I wasn’t expecting to get a good role, not because I was black, but because I didn’t have confidence in my ability. Getting Ariel was definitely the highlight of my middle school.
