In early February, I had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo to assist Jackie Lopez with a Hip-Hop residency at a local middle school. Jackie was brought in to teach Hip-Hop after school for a TV series in Japan. (The show will be premiering at the end of February.) Witnessing the amazing work Jackie did with the students, despite the language barrier, was so inspiring. The trip as a whole was truly incredible - a once and a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget.
