Passion Student Spotlight

This past week I was genuinely inspired by two young men, Kingsley Basoah (left) and Yondez Webb (right) whom I met when I spoke at Berea College on February 25. After my gig, Kingsley approached me about coming to visit NYC during his spring break to inspire and share life lessons with students at my school! Kingsley and Yondez are freshmen, and this is how they wanted to spend their time. 

The two built a workshop centered around values and public speaking that I’ll be testing out this week. They also convinced probably every student at my school to come to Berea College! Other highlights of their visit included the chance to try Korean BBQ and eat the biggest slice of pizza in NYC! These guys really blew me away with their preparation and commitment to their goals, passions and young people. More than anything, they could self-advocate. Young, black and ready!

The Future Project Update 

The Future Project has established a partnership with its first major corporate sponsor, The Coach Foundation! The partnership is headlined by a number of student-centered events to take place in New York City, including the first-ever Future Summit on April 28. In addition, two honorary celebrity Dream Directors, Michael B. Jordan, and Selena Gomez will be visiting Future Project schools this Spring — which brings me to my favorite line: remember when Michael B. Jordan was trying to be like me?! 😂
