This past week we were invited to present on the H.Y.P.E. Movement at Salt Lake Community College's Pacific Islander College Day!
I invited Abigail Langi, Daela Tipton and Sulia Matagi to be the main presenters that day. They were awesome!!!

We initially met to go over what we would cover during the presentation and then exchanged emails throughout the week about the overall structure of the presentation and they came up with all the pictures for the powerpoint, wrote their own script, and also composed their own poetry. They were so amazing that I often forgot that they are only 12 years old!!!!!
It just goes to prove how extremely talented our young people are when we raise our expectations of them and offer them love, support and the right kind of mentorship! Anything is possible!
Check out the clips from their presentation and LIVE THE H.Y.P.E.!!!
The girls also showed Andrew Vai's spoken word piece Go To School and introduced him as their H.Y.P.E. Brother from the Bay area... very powerful! Check out the video and GET ON THE H.Y.P.E.!!!
