Genesis Be, founder of Strive Till I Rise, recently gave a presentation at Univ. Of Southern Mississippi. With the help of Strive Co-Developer, Auzriel, we’ve reduced the 45 minute presentation to a 15 minute summary. Genesis spoke about the use of Hip Hop and entertainment as a means to relate to the youth, empowering and educating them at the same time. She urged the 300 some educators and social workers in the audience to open their minds to alternative means of teaching and therapy. Strive Till I Rise will be speaking next for the Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition in Jackson, MS (Hilton Hotel) Oct 15-16 about bullying, self-esteem and respect.
