“I can sing as good as the wind blows.”
From Tajae Hinds Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice

My name’s Tajae Hinds, I am 15 years old, I attend the school of SLJ – the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice. One thing people wouldn’t know about me just by looking at me is that I can sing as good as the wind blows. When I sing, it brings people to tears or gives them goose bumps. [Sings on recording!]

Interview conducted in Brooklyn, NY.
