Lover of Hip Hop, Alisha Sweatt, uses her personal experiences to make new connections within herself and with others.
Sweatt developed a strong, deep passion for Hip Hop when her father, DJ and producer, passed away in 2005 at a young age. To cope with his death, she made a connection with him by listening to Hip Hop.
“I just looked at Hip Hop to help me through it,” she said. “So, that’s where it really turned into a real passion.”
