I joined Teen H.Y.P.E my Sophomore year of high school and have been a part of their family every since! As a Junior in college at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, I can honestly say I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Teen HYPE. I have a scholarship for Hip-Hop/ Theater and Spoken word when before joining Teen HYPE, I only had a few verses written in tattered notebooks and spoken word poetry just wasn't something I was doing. They encouraged me pursue both and playwriting and acting. They supported me immensely throughout my high school career and continue to do so even though I'm too old for the program. I recommend all of the youngstas I know from back home to join Teen HYPE. It's an environment they can be themselves and where their skills and interest will be honed (not to mention it keeps youth off the streets and promotes positivity). I don't know where I'd be without Teen HYPE. When I make my first million dollars, $100,000 is going to the program and they can hold me to that!
