Review for Amario's Art Academy for the Gifted and Talented , Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’m Dorothy Lucey, a filmmaker, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. I couldn’t let another day go by without telling you about the amazing Amario Andre, owner of Amario’s Art Academy. Recently, I won the Best Documentary Award at the Peachtree Village International Film Festival in Atlanta, GA for my documentary feature “Open Legs With A Closed Mind”. During my short visit, I had the pleasure to meet Amario Andre. After scheduling the wrong travel date, time, and with no family nearby, I was stranded in Atlanta, GA. Mr. Andre saw fear in my eyes and wanted to help. Unknowingly, he was the supervisor with magical powers. He went to the very same attendant and requested a change of travel. It was so unusual to have someone as kind, helpful, and loving to want to help me. I’m used to be the giver and not receiving. Amario will never understand how something as small as changing a bus ticket gave me hope with a higher purpose. Sometimes we take advantage of the small things that mean the most. I’m certain Amario’s Art Academy is a program utilized for the benefit of others, and I look forward to being a part of the organization. Amario Andre is an amazing person and his generosity will never be forgotten.
