Teens With a Purpose CELEBRATED the youth voice this past Saturday at the Peninsula Qualifying Slam. Courageous youth poets took the stage with one objective – to share their stories. All participants will move on to be on the Hampton Roads Youth Poetry Team and the top three ranking have qualified to compete at the Grand Slam Finals. Congratulations to Dayvondria Braxton, Emily “Em” Allison and Jasmine Gilbert! Besides the electrifying spoken word shared, the audience was treated to an outstanding performance by young artists – Gabrielle “Bri” Pinkney with her new single “Nothing is Impossible”, local dance troup R3@ktion, and young lyricist Larry Manuel.
