AWARD-WINNING BLACK EDUCATOR NAMED Gahmya Drummond-Bey THAT TRAVELS TO 20 COUNTRIES AND USES HIP-HOP TO GIVE KIDS AND TEENS THE SECRETS TO SUCCESS
Nationwide -- Every day, kids are bombarded with negativity on television and the radio. TED-Resident, global educator and CEO of Evolved Teacher, Gahmya Drummond-Bey is setting out to spin a more positive tune with the release of Bathroom Besties: Hip Hop Affirmations for Kids, a CD packed with 10 powerful affirmations kids and teens can "Milly Rock" and bust out in Fortnite dance moves as they motivate themselves every morning to strive for greatness.
While this is the first children's CD she has created, Drummond-Bey is no stranger to inspiring and motivating kids and teens to find their mission. In May 2018, she covered the topic in a heart-wrenching TED Talk where she received roaring applause. Drummond-Bey has spent much of her career seeking to understand how kids learn and relying on her passion as a teacher to educate young minds in South Korea, Turkey, Turkmenistan and various other parts of the world.
With tunes carrying titles such as "Everyday I'm Better," "My Voice Is My Power" and "I Meditate Away My Hater," Bathroom Besties: Hip Hop Affirmations for Kids provide powerful reminders to help children positively navigate challenging situations or quiet negative thoughts.
