Pt.7 of 7
Be the role model you missed or were grateful to have growing up❤
The last treat in my 7 piece series of «The Power Of Representation» of people i not only admire but also, people I'm truly grateful to have living in our time. 💪🏿Our young future leaders have role models because of what these people have accomplished and still thriving🙌🏿❤
NOW! Back to my last treat; The 22 yr young queen; Jeaninne M Lukusa @maasikalukusa.
Lukusa is a journalist, narrator, spoken word artist and a former Norwegian champion in Slam poetry / Spoken word. .
🎙She has appeared on several national stages with her arts. The past years, Lukusa has been exploring and written studies on how poetry and spoken word form can be developed into broader and interdisciplinary performance expressions supported by @tekstlab. Her works are also sponsored of none other than; #TalentNorge and #NyNorskensHus 💰👑👑🙌🏿
Although we appeared on the same program for «Afrikanske Dager» back in 2014 as this lovely talent, i have to admit that i did´t really discover her full talent and works until november last year. .
It was through the captive, vulnerable, artistic and historical piece « BUT DOES GOD BELIEVE IN US, THOUGH? « that was @amiedanseur ´s first solo performance at #UniversityCollegeofDanceArt @hoyskolenfordansekunst as a commentary on the slave trade in Libya. .

Lukusa wrote and composed the verbal poetic expressions of the hopelessness, fear and inhuman brutality that surrounds this practice. She did so elegantly in English, French and Norwegian, which are three of the five languages she speaks fluently ( Tshiluba and Swahili).
📚If you still aren’t convinced over this artist´s early greatness, then you should know that Jeaninne M. Lukusa also holds workshops in performing arts. She has one called "Your Life's Masterpiece" («Ditt livs mesterverk») where she teaches how to convey your everyday story in a masterful way- a course i personally can´t wait to participate in <3
