Profile Information

A little about me:
I am President and Founder of United Voices of Youth (UVOY) a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to create community partnerships to assist underserved individuals in discovering their voices and their talent to lead, starting with their ability to read. Our signature program is
Back 2 Basics, a phonics based literacy program infused with music and rhythm, offered to individuals struggling with basic literacy.
Your University Park secret:
3 years ago, we partnered with USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering and the Annenberg School of Communication to research the benefits of incorporating the elements of music and rhythm into our existing phonics-based literacy curriculum. The University’s research indicated the accelerated improvement in language learning using these techniques along with individualized instruction for the participant to learn at their own pace. We conducted pilot programs with children, teens, adults, special needs and non-English speaking individuals at the California African American Museum and various locations throughout Los Angeles.
