speak up sing out-December 21st
On the third day of this youth-designed celebration of youth power and art, we are featuring three music acts, a dance performance and a panel from our partner organization, Morpheus Youth Project! The young representatives from MYP will talk about the organization, share their story, and give some insight into their new and recent projects, joined in conversation by members of our Youth Power PDX youth leadership core. Tune in!
My name’s Mei, I’m a senior at Grant High School, and I love to make music! I love performing with and for other people, and that’s not the easiest thing to do right now, but I’m thrilled about the online opportunities, and I look forward to making music in person again soon!

a spoken word poet, rapper, musician, artist who wants to change the world through art and self expression
I always grew up with a passion for music and dance and knew I wanted to become a performer. Right now I’m focused on creating the best music I can at 19. I started writing songs when I was 14, but I started singing around age 5-6 when my parents put me into a children’s choir group. Immediately I knew I was destined for the spotlight. I want others to feel like they are apart of something when they hear my music. I want them to feel like they belong, and that through my music they feel connected to me as an artist. A lot of my writing inspiration comes from an alternative pop style, but my voice sounds like a mix between pop/r&b. I just want people to smile when they hear me, I can’t wait for the world to hear my latest projects, because there’s a lot of me to uncover through my songs.
