Entrepreneurial Alumni Speaker Series - Building Unity: The Transformation of a B-Boy

29 October 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Michael Prosserman aka 'Bboy Piecez', managed to overcome a chronic neck condition while juggling taking care of his mother who was diagnosed with a serious mental illness. Michael took his anger and turned it into art.

In this talk Michael shares the transformative impact B-Boying ('Breakdancing') had on his mental health and within the community. Using his intuition and good old trial and error, Mike talks about building a grassroots movement using hip hop to improve youth mental health. He focuses on the simple yet powerful philosophies that built Unity from topics in his new best-selling book including: building the plane while flying it; designing grassroots programs with community, and developing teams that support mental health in the workplace.
