SaulPaul visited Burnet Middle School, giving two presentations on being the change to students in sixth and seventh grade. Continuing his #BeTheChange movement, SaulPaul brought encouragement through personal experience to set an example. The presentation consisted of student volunteers and engagement in dance, speaking to their peers, games, songs, chants, and so much more. SaulPaul shared his background from childhood to adulthood showing the students that no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, class, the situation they were born into, past experiences, or where they came from, they too can gain an education and be the change in their world. Some students were so moved by the performance that they free-styled and drew pictures for SaulPaul to express themselves and their thanks. SaulPaul continues his movement, helping youths from all backgrounds gain confidence in themselves for their bright futures.
