Meet Jamaal Jackson Rogers, or JustJamaal The Poet as he calls himself on his Facebook page.
We are delighted that he will be giving a short performance at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 19 November at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill.
Jamaal’s recitation will be part of a number of presentations that focus on Celebrating Overbrook Youth: Talent – Energy – Resources.
When asked what message he might like to convey to the young people of Overbrook, Jamaal mentioned four key ideas:
- Remember that life is a journey, a process that happens every moment
- There are no failures, only life lessons
- Believe in and depend on your own talent and find people to believe in and support you
- Be open to allow others to help you
We look forward to welcoming Jamaal to this meeting to focus on youth in our community.
The presentations and performance follow a short OCA business meeting which begins at 6:30 pm.
