When you are writing, you have to have good human qualities. You’ve got to know how to be transparent and vulnerable and know how to collaborate. Sanyika The Firestarter believed he was none of those. Sanyika Street was originally from Washington, DC. He moved to LA to pursue a career in entertainment. At age 24, he was doing national commercials, movies and TV shows on FOX. By age 32, he had a drinking problem which left him broken. At that point, Sanyika realized that the most important thing he needed to do was to start telling his story. The first fire he lit was the light within himself through video blogging. As he started to feel better, it opened the pathways for him to move into the space of speaking and performing arts. Sanyika talks about his YHUTU approach to rebuilding himself and blazing a trail for others to follow.
