Got picked up by Nickelodeon Qwendera got picked up by Nickelodeon. They have already sent him a script to study. If he is successful he will be going to New York. And I must say that I enjoyed the show. Knowing that I was skeptical and pessimistic at first. You have my apologies. As you know Qwendera is very talented. Thank you so much, Qwendera's dad
