“... Thanks to Olisa, I speak with purpose, I am not ashamed to take up space in a room and I have self- respect. Olisa keeps it real. She will check students who are not living up to their potential and she will challenge students to change "I can't" to "I'll try."

Testimonials from youth
"Ms. Olisa changed my life. She has been so patient with me yet she always pushes me to my limit. Besides music, she’s taught me how to love and be comfortable with myself along with taking care of myself (and vocal chords). I’m so thankful for all she has done for me and it makes me happy to see she’s doing this so hopefully she can help other youth the same way she has helped me."
