    My Interview with Seth Godin: Getting Schooled

    One of my proud moments when I interviewed the one-and-only Seth Godin. Although I interviewed him before Covid-19 hit, so much of his wisdom can inform the choices we make and the approaches we take around what school is for and some of the practices we choose to incorporate into our classrooms.

    Unity through Art (With Raphael Divi)

    Unity through Art (With Raphael Divi)

    Raphael (Didier) Vincent from Port-Au Prince Haiti, grew up as the middle child in a family of five brothers. The family left Haiti when he was at the age of 10, arriving in Victoria in the spring of 2008.

    Growing up, Raphael was inspired by his father, Alain Vincent, a hard working pharmacist and business owner who would paint during his downtime. From the many perspectives of unspoken stories through his father’s artwork, Raphael developed a unique way of expression through various art mediums.

    In Haiti, the words “ L'union fait la Force” is seen on the flag. This means “Strength Through Unity” and it is the energetic seed he wishes to share with every student he comes in contact with.

    Raphael was born and raised in a large close family concept, where the idea of unity has always been present, and he wanted to bring this understanding to all students, no matter where they are in the world.

    Inspired by his work for the family’s non-profit organization “The Daily Dose Society”, Raphael wants to use his art to create healing in our communities. In particular, Raphael works with youth and communities to co-create art representing the magnificent chaotic orchestra of the shared human experience.

    Being an ear to countless stories of suffering and hardship from people in recovery from substance use has largely widened his perspective in life and towards the long journeys through recovery. With this wish to gift to share of the Unity Mandala.

    Raphael hopes to create a healing symbol for those involved in the system and bringing students together for the greater good.

    In particular, Raphael works with youth and communities to co-create art representing individuality in a collective.

    “ Art is meant to represent the magnificent chaotic orchestra of the shared human experience” ~

    How to Support Our Scholars and Teams (With Nadia Lopez)

    Why you should listen
    Dr. Nadia Lopez is pioneering a path of inspired leadership. The founding principal of Mott Hall Bridges Academy, a New York City Public School, Lopez became a viral sensation after one of her students was featured on the popular blog, Humans of New York. Millions of people around the world discovered the positive learning environment, high expectations and growing success rate at her school, which is located right in the middle of one of the most under-served communities in America. In 2015 a Humans of New York fundraiser raised $1.4 million to take Lopez's students on college trips that include Harvard University, Summer STEAM programs and college scholarships.

    Lopez's story was shared across numerous media outlets and resulted in her guest appearing on the Ellen Show, visiting President Barack Obama at the White House and receiving the Medal of Distinction from Barnard College. In addition, Lopez was honored alongside First Lady Michelle Obama with the Change Agent Award at the Black Girls Rock show hosted on BET Networks.

    Lopez's passion, belief in children and strong conviction has been unwavering in her belief that her community needs strong leadership. Despite the adversities she faced in opening Mott Hall Bridges Academy in 2010, Lopez is encouraged and inspired to see children overcome the "beautiful challenges" of Brownsville and ensuring that they are admitted into some of the most competitive high schools in New York City. Understanding the power of programming, Lopez continues to impact the lives of children through her "She Is Me" and "I Matter" initiatives, which have served thousands of youth throughout Central Brooklyn by providing workshops, forums and mentoring. Lopez continues to influence and inspire the world through her company The Lopez Effect, which offers a blueprint for personal and organizational success.
