We chose to inspire Lin-Manuel Miranda to become an ambassador for Music Therapy because of the following:
???? We ran a poll in our Professional Success FB group, and Lin was #2 after Lady Gaga. Here’s the poll, which you can see if you’re a member of the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/StaircaseToSuccess/permalink/895301007334790/
????️ He is an excellent community organizer, and well-known for this! REALLY well-known for his grassroots leadership! Follow him on social to understand what I’m talking about.
???????? He already funds “arts & healing” type programs in Puerto Rico. And we would like to appeal to his current interest in that. Cindybet Pérez & Marta Hernández-Candelas are our MT-BCs in PR. Mabel Ortiz is on our team, from PR, and supports this idea! Jeniris M. González has done MT work in PR and is on board!
???? He has millions upon millions of fans and followers all over social media, and he is responsive to fans who write letters via USPS. Our team member Beth Allard Yoder can attest to this!
So, are you in? Entering the contest is really easy! Here are the details ????????????
