Nineteen year-old Roslynn Johnson says she’s pretty shy. So she didn’t expect to spend her summer singing about sex. But that’s exactly what she did.
This summer, 65 students from the D.C. area came together to write and perform "Unprotected," a musical about teen pregnancy.
Johnson has a baby girl. And she says she identifies with the musical's message.
"As far as pregnancy, STDs, HIV and all of that, don’t put yourself in that situation just because of one day of fun or something like that," she says. "Because that’ll cost you your life."
"Unprotected" was produced by the program City at Peace, with support from the D.C. Summer Youth Employment Program and Metro Teen AIDS.
