Terrific Teen Tuesday – We’re All Irish Underneath

So, recovering from St Patrick’s Day I think we can all agree that there’s a bit of the Irish in everyone. And no one knows that more than this week’s terrific teen, Drew Lovejoy. Drew, who need not commit to any racial or ethnic pigeonhole as far as I’m concerned, identifies as half African American and half Jewish American. But to the the judges of the International All Ireland Dancing Championship he’s green all over. Drew, 17,  just won the top prize for the third straight year, after being the first person of color ever to become a world champion Irish dancer.

Drew, you’re TERRIFIC! Here’s a little video to show you some of Drew’s dancing chops:
