Youth Empowerment through Music | Chat with Emma G Living on the B Side

    • Music

Emma G has been using the power of music to empower, inspire, and motivate audiences worldwide her entire life. Born with a rare neurological condition called hydrocephalus, Emma G has used the power of music and song writing to recover from multiple traumas, including ten brain surgeries, by writing and singing her truth, sharing her experiences, and turning her lessons into blessings.

With features in the Washington Post, Thrive Global Magazine, PBS, Radio New Zealand, and CBC News, New Zealand-born edutainer has expanded her mission of saving the world one song at a time to incorporate her history as an award-winning youth-worker, launching YES Youth Coaching: a completely new approach to youth work combining Emma G’s history as a teacher, lecturer, YMCA youth worker and – of course – an award-winning musician.

In this episode we cover:

· How song writing can help young people to express in a structured but fun way what they are feeling, esp after a therapy session

· How to write a song

· Her time as a teenager compared to growing up now

· Advice/tips for younger people on how to deal with stress and mental health

· How to use your brain and music to recreate your old stories into new ones

· Her personal music tastes (and why)

· The ONE song that describes her life and or business & why

· Her words of wisdom and encouragement
