We all have dreams we strive for. Motivation is key to staying on the right track. Music serves as inspiration to us all. Life corresponds with music in many ways. On the journey to reaching our dreams the road can be as edgy as modern day Rap and Hip-Hop or sometimes it can be as smooth as modern day Jazz. Whatever genre our lives may relate to we can be sure that the music will keep us moving. I recently connected with artist and producer Gary Foote who continues to follow his dreams in the music industry. Gary’s journey with music started when he was in the fourth grade, and he made it his vocation. He continues to expand the horizon of music through his artistry. He currently works with Smokey Robinson and Blood Sweat and Tears, artist that are known for their rock, blues, pop, and jazz arrangements. When asked which artist are playing in his ipod, he named Herbie Hancock, Mary j Blige, P funk, along with the Ohio Players. These artist seem to have an influence on his music. While Mr. Foote works on his own music, he also has a love for producing artist. The message behind his music is to follow your dreams. He explained that the most difficult part about being an artist is maintaining health and spiritual disciplines. Mr.Foote has managed to share his talents by following his dreams and doing what he loves. After listening to his latest album, it’s easy to conclude that Gary is gifted. It is inspiring to meet people like Gary Foote as they are reminders of the importance of following your dreams and living for what you love. I have posted links below to preview/buy his latest album Harlem Works which features combinations of Jazz Funk and Hip-Hop. Gary hopes to perform in Wisconsin soon.

Follow Me On InstagramAt home STEM activity for kids: This week Beyond STEM students engaged in activities that really drove home the point that Software is just a set of instructions. Together we did the Peanut butter jelly sandwich challenge. Students had to write out instructions on how to make a sandwich.. I was the computer that tried to carry out the instructions... if a student wrote “put jelly on bread”.. I’d put the jar on top of the bag of bread.. Students soon learned that as a computer I could only do what the instructions tell me and nothing more! They went back debugged their code and tried again several times. This was a super fun activity to show them how computers interpret instructions and how we as software developers have to communicate with computers... easy enough right? If you have a young one at home try this activity with them. It’s an awesome STEM activity that teaches them the necessity of thoroughness when programming. Big Thank you to the brilliant Tanzania Sewell for allowing me to lead the last two sessions and for having the vision to put this awesome program together. #StemForTheWin #beyondStem #naptime #stemIsTheNewBlackHad the pleasure of leading today’s Beyond STEM session! It was a good time. Students learned about software development life cycle and design thinking. Glad I also had the opportunity to share my struggles and successes in my career thus far. I share my story with young people to remind them that perseverance is key and to never let people make them feel like they don’t belong. The Beyond STEM students are brilliant and give me much hope for our future. #STEMForTheWin #representationMatters #beyondStem #napTimeStill.Shout out to my designated homies. #siblingsday
