Most people go though life not really getting any smarter. Why? They simply won’t do the work required.

It’s easy to come home, sit on the couch, watch TV and zone out until bed time rolls around. But that’s not really going to help you get smarter.

Miss Mykie

Miss Mykie


By Brandi L. Spencer


BET 106 & Park’s Miss Mykie paid a special visit to the students of Gregory-Lincoln Education Center today!. Located in the heart of Houston’s Fourth Ward community, Miss Mykie served as the schools Theatre Arts teacher before being selected out of thousands to be one of the hosts of the popular Urban video show. She said, “I am so excited to come back and visit my former students!!”.

I think that her visit was very impactful to the students of Gregory Lincoln education center. Her rise to fame is a great example of how you can achieve anything that you set your mind to. With hard work and perseverance there is nothing that young African Americans cannot achieve!

Thanks Miss Mykie!

You are truly a Black Girl Who Rocks!!!!
