@meet_THEYOUNGS, a people-empowerment initiative I began alongside Will Edem and Sonia Lopez.
Since Jan 2017, a platform has been developing for non-traditional creatives to safely exhibit youth, creativity, and community. By simply bringing together people who aren't in the same room enough, we're able to take an experiential approach to activism, crowdfunding, research, and storytelling.
We are listening for, investing in, and telling the truth.Next weekend we’re having an art gallery (1/27) and a trade show (1/28). -
Happy Birthday, Drake. You would’ve been 30 today. I still remember when I got that call from my mom. I’d never felt anything like that before. I didn’t know how to handle it. I tried going into work the next day. I tried to act like the feeling wasn’t real. That it’d go away if I tried not to think about it. I remember the fit. Broke out a new pair of shoes that day just for you. Them Saucony x West NYC’s. I knew you were a Jordan guy but that just wasn’t really my steez cuzzo. The fit didn’t change the feeling though. You could still see it in my eyes. Jena and Jake saw it in my eyes at work. Jena’s so sweet, she felt what I felt. She made sure I was okay and sent me home. She let me go feel. I left and went to be with my mom. I couldn’t imagine what she was feeling. Drake was her sister’s only son. I’m my mom’s only son. I couldn’t imagine what she was feeling. Today, I know that that’s called love. I love you cuz, this one’s for you.
