Round two of The Ruler's educational seminars landed him in Central High School. There, he was involved in a Q&A conversation moderated by Ras Baraka, Principal of Central High School and Council Member of Newark, NJ. The student body, administrators and staff assembled in the auditorium and learned about overcoming struggles, the ups and downs of the music industry, safe sex practices, having self-confidence and the importance of having an education.
Mr. Baraka said the following; “Through Rick’s first-hand experiences, he taught our students to make informed decisions, explore self-creativity and overcome struggle despite life’s setbacks.”
Rick adds: “I’ve been hearing about the decline in high school graduates and schools closing around the city. I hope I can be a service to these young individuals and along with their educators, help open pathways of knowledge and success and help keep them encouraged.”
