"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."- Victor Hugo. The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21, the summer solstice. Music is the sound of a society, of a time and a place. It articulates the ideas and emotions that "cannot remain silent." This refusal to remain silent is why music has so much social power. To celebrate world music day, we invite you to explore the connection between music and social change.

In the words of Kofi Annan, "Illicit drugs destroy innumerable individual lives and undermine our societies.

My philosophy is as a person is; you can only be adequately fulfilled in life when those around you have a positive reason to emulate you. My goal and career aspiration is to become a seasoned social advocate and administrator. I enjoy doing and making a success in those important things that many neglect.
I am inspired by many different things but the one that stands out the most by youth taking action i just feel that it doesn't matter how small the work you do is and how many people you help as long as i see youth taking action and trying to make this world a better place.
