Rapper/Songwriter Big Sean has teamed up with his mother, who has history with working in education, to provide access to careers within the entertainment industry to hundreds of students.
The “Bounce Back” artist recently launched Mogul Prep, an interactive workshop for students and educators to network with professionals in the music industry. Across four cities, including his hometown of Detroit, the music artist is incorporating the initiative with his “I Decided” tour.
Big Sean’s mother, Myra Anderson, says she knows first hand the power of “providing students with a relevant and real world learning experience.”
“As a former teacher I know how difficult it is for teachers to develop lesson plans that consistently keep students actively engaged and are aligned to core standards …Mogul Prep solves both of these problems,” she continued.
The Sean Anderson Foundation, which was founded in 2012, has had a huge influence on many, including one Baltimore principal who said, “because of Mogul Prep, our students have begun to think more seriously about their education and their potential careers after graduation."
In a video about the program, Big Sean and managers for his fourth studio album tour share the importance of the initiative. Additionally, students share how this behind the scenes look into the industry has impacted their lives.
“I hope it helps them reach the success that they are meant for,” Big Sean said.
