Children in South L.A. inspired by slain rapper Nipsey Hussle
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - To many, especially the children in his community, he's a hero. The selflessness of late Rapper Nipsey Hussle has inspired kids in Crenshaw, the area where he grew up and was giving back to.
10-year old Naya Lewis and her sister, 8-year old Khloe used to go to school in Watts. Naya was bullied until she couldn't take it anymore. So they enrolled in Crete Academy, where Naya is charter school President and the two excel, thanks to generous donors to their school, like Hussle.
"He's like a superhero because he saved the day for some people and he just really wants them to get better," said Khloe.
Naya has already come up with her own life motto: "After your education comes the dedication. What I'm basically saying is that all the little kids, or anybody going through tough times, get their education. Then comes the houses, the cars, everything you ever need in life to survive."
And then she says, you can give back and inspire others to do the same.
Naya and Khloe have big plans to pick up where Hussle left off. They've already started their own charitable cupcake business. One day Naya says she hopes to be President of the United States.
