A Man of His Word
“I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside.” What a powerful message the great Whitney Houston sang in one of her most popular songs?!
Hour Generation Foundation’s mission is to do exactly that: lead by example and inspire the younger generation to explore their own talents while finding the beauty not only in the end result, but the process as well.
Jerami Grant, the founder of Hour Generation Foundation, is the definition of one who practices what he preaches. At family functions when everyone is partying and having a good time, you’ll catch Jerami in the mix with his brothers being silly and goofy. A hot second later, you’ll spot him in a corner space with a notebook, book, headphones and something to write with. It is like he thirsts for more knowledge every chance he gets. He’s always reading and wanting to know more about his roots. To satisfy his knowledge cravings, he makes it a point to travel to different countries in his free time so that he is not only able to read about different things, but also experience them in the physical. He has mastered discipline and self-awareness at a very young age. His dedication and commitment to better himself in every area of his life is parallel to the vision and values he has set for Hour Generation Foundation. He’s an amazing example to kids and his willingness to be involved and hands on in all his events is heartwarming. Jerami wants to make a difference in others’ lives, but he also wants to build relationships beyond that. Hour Generation Foundation was created to empower and inspire and the ideas to execute this vision are only getting greater and bigger.
