The Miami Herald – The Motivational Edge hosts annual showcase
August 18th, 2015
It was a night full of music, dancing and artistic expression for the students of the Motivational Edge, a youth development agency that focuses on helping kids stay off the streets through after-school activities.
Their annual Music & Art Student Showcase, Aug. 13 at McCormick Place in downtown Miami, had a full house of guests to see paintings, sculptures and performances presented by the young people.
“We’ve tried to create a platform for inner-city youth to feel appreciated and have their voice be heard; build confidence; build morale and find an outlet to success and to know what it feels like to be successful,” said Ian Welsch, 33, founder of the Motivational Edge.
