Dignitas Lab – Jay-Z

Tomorrow in Tower 3121, Black Student Union (BSU) will host a Dignitas Lab event. Dear incoming college student: What’s a Dignitas event you ask? A Dignitas event can be a performance, a lecture, a panel, or a wide-variety of things. These events contribute to diversity, Catholicism, dignity, etc. Such events are tailored to freshman, but all are literally welcomed.

I’m excited about this particular Dignitas event because it centers around Jay-Z (an extremely legendary recording artist) and his struggles growing up in Brooklyn, New York City. When it comes to making something of your life, especially being a young black boy making creating a brand that’s fantastically lucrative, Jay-Z is my #1 inspiration. I come from a hard neighborhood that I am extremely proud of. Not that my life was as hard as Mr. Carter’s, but there were difficult times. Jay-Z ‘s music played a part in raising me, and helped me develop a deeper sense of self.

Jay-Z is now a very successful music business with a net worth more than $500 Million.
