She is an advocate of Hip Hop Kulture and volunteers her time to hold workshops and sessions in O‘ahu’s local community centers. Her background as an extreme surfer, pioneering b-girl (breakdancer) and journalist provide the foundation for a fresh and creative approach to education. LaneSki seeks to bring diversity to education through the arts and the blueprint of Hip Hop, which incorporates community and forms of “intelligent movement”.
“Hip is to know, it’s a form of intelligence. To be hip is to be update and relevant. Hop is a form of movement, you can’t just observe a hop, you gotta hop up and do it. Hip and hop is more than music Hip is the Knowledge, hop is the Movement. Hip and Hop is Intelligent movement.”
