My life has been greatly influenced by those who have helped me and given me opportunities to better myself and because of that, I do my best to help others improve themselves. Last year when I was gettin’ ready for the Rebuild Philippines concert, I got a letter from the Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Los Angeles asking if I could speak to the children there. My schedule was jam-packed but as luck would have it, I had an opening the day before the concert. I was so psyched to be able to talk to these kids, and I later found out that I was gonna meet them right before their hip-hop class!
Being at the school was amazing. I sat in the auditorium and watched the kids dance and perform for me; I couldn’t believe how talented these kids were and how much passion they had. These kids are def gonna to go far in life. When it was my time to speak to them, they asked me some great questions about what inspires me to do what I do and how I got to where I am today. I also got to show them some of my dance skills! Hopefully my life stories proved that with hard work and education you can BE anything you set your mind to!!!
It’s always great being able to share my story and even though I inspired the kids, they also inspired me as well.
