“My name is Tevin Charles, and I'm from the Port. My life as a kid was rough. I was lucky to have my mom In my life but life was still difficult. A lot of my friends are locked up, or dead. I’ve even held a dying friend in my arms. All the youth really want, is to be loved. I never felt like I belonged anywhere. That was until I discovered art. Art saved my life. I have been getting into gaining technical knowledge into songwriting and producing on my own for years and I joined the Loop Lab to help take my skills to the next level. This has been a life-changing experience. I get true love for who I am here.”
