Dancing to success!

18 October

Even with little resources, the internet is a fantastic tool to use your skills and find success. Sherrie Silver used YouTube to dance her way to success.

Silver had no access to financial resources growing up. She recorded dance videos on her phone and uploaded them to YouTube. The singer Childish Gambino took notice, leading to Silver’s major role in the  award-winning 2018 “This Is America” music video.

Silver decided to use the success of her “This Is America” dance to promote agriculture in Africa. The continent has 65% of the world’s uncultivated arable land, yet most of the rural youth feel obliged to lead urban lives due to poverty. Silver is determined to “make farming cool” in Africa with her #DanceforChange movement on the Tik Tok app.
