This Is Life was created to provide a platform for youth to use their voices and talents through powerful Rapping, Singing, Dancing, Poetry and more, while community organizations share resources designed to enhance the quality of life of Chicago residents and deter youth from violent activities.
The #ThisIsLife movement was founded in Chicago by mother-son duo Natalie Manning & Dorian "D.A." Adams at age 11. The idea was originally launched over 9 years ago. They wanted to create a safe space for Dorian and his peers to share their talents amongst one another and their communities. It has been a major success!
