I enjoyed all of the meet ups and getting to meet new people, and it was a chance for me to experience new things this Summer.

Lily Amarandei

Great job putting together the inaugural GRSummerProject 2018. Thank you for giving these young people a platform and especially I'd like to thank you on behalf of All of the Above Hip Hop Academy for giving our students this opportunity. Our students learned a lot through out the process and really came together because of this project. We look forward to next year and the AOTA Academy students plan on continuing the work they started through the winter into next summer.

Today was a blessing. I got to open up for a national artist and met a few major artist including the legend from back in the 80’s Kwame. S/o for 104.9 Magic and #Grsumerproject for giving me this opportunity.

Kamoni 12th Grade Godwin Heights

So proud of Lili - she participated in #grsummerproject this summer and proved that she is a real #bosslady! She is compassionate, kind, open and accepting. She makes friends wherever she goes. Not sure how she ended up with me or how she is turning out to be such a good kid!
