What keeps me going?

Posted by Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival (Creator)

Every year I get overwhelmed, under-motivated (not a word I know) and wonder how I will manage to pull this event off another year. Then...I look at the images from the past 8-years, I look at video and I read the saved comments from participants, teachers, and supporters.... 

Looking back to go forward...2012 Comments
