Freeport, Illinois — Having access to successful people isn’t easily available to youth in Freeport. Being able to walk up and talk openly with someone who plays on a TV series or, who makes their living as a musician, dancer or getting to talk with a successful entrepreneur isn’t something Freeport kids have access to every day.
The Non-Profit, “This Is Life”, started by Natalie Manning’s 11 year old son, hopes to give youth that experience this Sunday with a FREE event called Youth Lives Matter. Tons of very special guests, music, performances, food and networking opportunities for our youth of all ages.
Here’s Natalie with her son (now 16) along with Malasia Jordan (who just opened a new business in the Lincoln Mall) to talk about this Sunday’s event.
The local expo is being held on the corner of Adams & Liberty in Freeport.
