I have a passion for working with youth, their success is my success.” says Jarvis. Brown is very passionate about music. Leading by example Brown is also a self taught musician who writes, composes, and produces his own music.
Always pressing forward Brown and his team of amazing youth have created a short film discussing the causes and effects of bullying. With no end in sight they are continually composing original songs, being featured in magazines and radio interviews Detroit New Look is definitely creating a name for itself. Many great things are happening with New Look and I’m excited to be a part of a great foundation.
