Roberto Rivera
Good Life Alliance / 7 Mindsets - Pres & Lead Change Agent



In this talk, Roberto Rivera reclaims the history of hiphop culture and breaks down how it embodies best practices in social emotional learning, post traumatic growth and social change. Roberto provides scientific research and remixes it with stories of personal and community transformation. Roberto was a former student deemed "at-risk," by the age of 15 he was kicked out of school, ran away from home, and was in drug rehab. He now is a renown educator, social entrepreneur, and published scholar. He will illustrate his points further with case studies that illustrate these principles in school and community contexts. This talk will inspire you, any educator, artist or concerned citizen.
