What can you expect at the Open Mic Night?
Lil-T hosts positivity events for college students across the country. I had the opportunity to tell him about Open Mic Night and what the students can expect to see this weekend. Lil-T told me that this event is about bringing the students together and realizing that they are not alone. Students will be able to see their friends, classmates and even their rivals perform everything from singing and dancing to other talents. They’ll also hear from motivational speakers like Lil-T himself.
Who is Lil-T?
I met Lil-T earlier this summer at an event, and he told me about his plan to have a huge and uplifting event for the students in the area. He knows this pandemic has caused a lot of stress in the lives of young people and he wants to shine a light of positivity on them. And Lil-T is sort of the perfect person to send out positive messages.
Lil-T told me that he had already had a grand mal seizure when he was young. After being diagnosed with brain disease, being told that he may lose the ability to speak again, lose the ability to write, be placed in special education classes and be bullied, He won. One great thing he said was, “My number one strength is meant to be my weakness.” Now he is traveling the country encouraging children to “keep practicing, stay dedicated, and remember that anything is possible.”
