LC Cooper Jr., age 24, Benton Harbor


“My father passed away two years ago and I realized at that time I’d

have to take care of my family. My mother’s been working the same job

the last 30 years, so I know for my family to survive I’d have to step up

and take school seriously and I look at life (through) a bit of different lens

now. I am the one who has to take responsibility to better my business

to support not only my lifestyle, but my mother’s as well. My business

doubles as a record label and a personal development company. I’m a

musician. I like to record music and my long term goal with this business

is to create a platform for younger kids to get mentored, to take them

through the process that I went through and continue going through, so

blending music and education, I call it edutainment.”
