Earlier today I spent an inspiring afternoon with new friend, actor and multi-talented creative talent and businessman Brian White over lunch. I am honored to call Brian the newest 5MK Ambassador and one of the stars fueling the 2010 and beyond 5MK "Make Smart Sexy Tour" of and through America's high-schools. We have been making dumb sexy for too long, and now it's time to make smart sexy again. Check out Brian White and his charity Black Carpenters online or simply read below.
“The purpose of Black Carpenter is to create a tool box of essential life skills for the next generation. I had the great fortune of being born into a family with strong values who gave me the courage to follow my dreams and reach for the stars. My mother and father instilled in me a sense of purpose not defined by today’s street obsession with bling, cars or cribs. Black Carpenter is as much their message of hope, perseverance and achievement for young people, as it is mine.”
