FORMER STUDENT MAKES TIME TO GIVE BACK
June 4 -- Former student Chental Song-Bembry, (pictured center), author of children's book series, Honey Bunch Kids, is currently working on another book addressing more serious issues facing young people with plans to turn it into an animated series. Since her days at Beyond Expectations, Chental has been featured as a Making a Difference M.A.D. Girl on Black Girls Rock and Early Riser with BET Honors for her community service with youth literacy.
A rising senior at Hampton University enroute to a phenomenal internship with an ABC Television affiliate, she took time to stop by and visit current students in our Youth Media program. Chental also made time during her break to speak with hundreds of children at a local elementary school.
In addition to completing her book, she has developed a motivational presentation, Passion & Purpose. She was invited to present it at Studio B Bistro & Bakery as part of a live studio taping featuring CEO and music legend John Ellison, original songwriter of "Some Kind of Wonderful", where students worked as part of the production crew for a show that will air on Princeton Community Television.
