Shadow Play Entertainment is pleased to announce Georgette Cardenas, a mortgage broker who gained national attention on the VH1 reality show I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY, has joined the Hiphop and Books literacy campaign.
The Hiphop and Books literacy campaign was created to use the influence of recording artists to encourage music lovers to not forget the importance of reading and staying in school. Georgette learned of the project in August 2008, and was eager to use her celebrity in order to bring attention to literacy.
In a passionate statement written to Hiphop and Books, she said the following:
"In the world we live in today with so many kids growing up in single parent homes or just having so much exposure to the media it is highly important for recording artists to try and be positive role models for children and young adults who look up to them. Reading is definitely a topic that they should highlight in their work. Reading builds vocabulary, helps with spelling and exercises the brain. If the individuals that are in the spotlight emphasize the importance of it to our children and young adults who want to be like them, then without a doubt reading amongst the youth would be more popular. I believe school gives you a foundation and develops skills so that you can succeed in life. It gives you a chance to challenge yourself and best of all it opens doors for you. There is nothing like the feeling of accomplishment that you experience when you receive your high school and college diplomas. I think that being blessed with talent and being able to be an artist comes with the responsibility of educating and trying to impact the life of others in a positive manner."
Georgette is in good company since she joins the ever-growing literacy coalition that has committed itself to be a force for good in their community. To learn more about the Hiphop and Books campaign and how you can play a part in its mission, visit http://www.hiphopandbooks.com.
