Bikbaye Inejnema must have a business card with an extremely small print! He has a bachelor's degree in Sociology and founded Conscious Youth Global Network (CYGN) in 2013 after a colleague’s son tragically took his own life at the age of 16. The boy, an aspiring hip hop artist, had struggled with being biracial in an all-white community. CYGN’s first line of engagement was a radio show. Featuring young poets, spoken word artists, musicians and singers, the radio show took off as a space for youth to shine. Bikbaye strives to utilize art to equip youth with the skills to become positive, productive citizens. Focusing on diverse topics ranging from leadership development to financial literacy to health and nutrition, Bikbaye gives youth the tools they need to create empowered and enlightened content. As Bikbaye says, “The goal is to flood airwaves, the media, everywhere with enlightened art.” In addition to working with young artists, Bikbaye is committed to being a strong role model for adolescent males in his community and ensuring that any youth lacking a strong male role model obtains the support and wisdom to transition into adulthood.
