2014-03-04 15:29:20 - Pitbull's promotion of the school may set a new standard for helping at-risk kids. More importantly perhaps, Iwenofu believes that Pitbull's message demonstrates to young people that hard work and focus can overcome any life challenge
A recent article on the Washington Post Magazine website discusses how Armando Christian Perez, aka rapper "Pitbull", achieved superstar status after spending years on the streets selling drugs. He is now giving back to his former Miami neighborhood by helping at-risk kids escape from those same streets. He is supporting a new charter school in his old neighborhood and he delivered the keynote address at the 2013 National Charter Schools Conference.
"I am always excited," stated Iwenofu, "to learn about successful people who give back to the community they came from in order to make it better than when they found it. For instance, multi-platinum selling artist, Armando Christian Perez, best known as "Pitbull", never forgot his challenges as a young
kid growing up trying to survive, and therefore decided to support this school to help the younger generation discover possibilities in their own lives where they can persevere through all adversity and situations in order to become successful in any undertaking they choose, provided they know clearly what they want and are willing to do what's necessary to achieve it."
"As difficult a childhood as Pitbull may have endured, he never made that an excuse not to pursue his dreams, which in his case was music. He understood that a dream backed by passion, perseverance, and determination, would help deliver him from any challenges he was currently experiencing to the life he always wanted. And by supporting this school, he wants other children to know what's possible and use the tools necessary to achieve it. In essence, rather than people using their current status as an excuse not to succeed, it should be used as a motivation TO succeed as an inspiration to others of what can be done with the human mind as exemplified through Pitbull.
