About Me Sections

Why is it so hard to start an About Me section? 

 

If you struggle with an About Me section, just know that you aren't alone. For many of us, summarizing What We Do or Who We Are is strange, like we're talking about someone else. And oftentimes, the "someone else" we end up describing comes off sounding smug or impersonal. But then if we swing to a more casual tone, it's like we're trying SO hard to be chill. Too chill in fact. It's like we throw in so many cliches and expressions that inundate the internet because we *think* they sound good that we end up sounding like psychopaths. Then we hit Publish and forget all about that terrible, horrible, no good, very bad page. (And yes, that's a nod to one of my favorite children's books there!)

If you want to take the stress out of your About Me page, let me help you like I helped Bernard.

AFTER

 

Bernard Henry II aka Young Sic was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Growing up in LA, the young Bernard fell into a fast and hard lifestyle. At only 14, he had already experimented with drugs, alcohol, and sex. When he and his family relocated from the West Coast to Alabama, trouble moved with Bernard. At a new school, his old reputation emerged and he was soon expelled. When he could have been disregarded as just another troubled youth, Bernard's story wasn't over. His story was only beginning. Even though Bernard felt far from God at that time in his life, God was close and working a way towards Bernard's heart. The turning point happened when a friend invited Bernard to church where a powerful transformation overcame him. From that moment, his life was changed. Bernard experienced the power of God in that church, which led him to surrendering his life to Christ at 16. God redefined the former troublemaker into a new, better young man. With the power of Christ on his side, Bernard surrounded himself with positive influences. Bernard re-enrolled in school and became a productive student. Bernard continued to strive to be a better person. He knew God wanted him to do something more with the life he almost messed up. That's when his God-given talent in music was revealed to him. Bernard had always been musically inclined. But when Christ redeemed him, his talent of rapping became his way of ministering about the power of God. The once troubled youth became a reformed rapper known as Young Soldier in Christ, or Young SIC. As Young SIC, Bernard began ministering in Mobile to a group he knew all too well--troubled teens. Young SIC's mission is to spread a message of hope through rap music and evangelism. As a pastor, rap artist, and mentor, Young SIC has traveled across the U.S., and abroad through "Youth with a Mission" to New Zealand and England. Along with his music and motivational speaking, Young SIC continues to work closely with youth throughout the Mobile County area. His mission of hope focuses on helping people, especially the youth, discover Christ's purpose for them. By giving them the tools they need to overcome and excel in their circumstances, Young SIC encourages, empowers, and engages people to find hope in the body of Christ.

I believe in a Little Something Extra

I wanted to give Bernard a shortened music bio that he could give for radio and interview appearances. While it seems like a small gesture, I believe in giving a little something extra to clients for thanking them for their trust in changing up their About Me sections. 

Bernard Henry II, known as Young Sic in the Christian Rap arena, has become a strong voice in providing positive music in the same style and culture of hip hop. Imbued with Christ's message, his songs are thought-provoking and inspired by his transformation in the Holy Spirit.Young Sic's lyrics deliver his personal narrative, which relate to today's youth, wrapped in compassion to reach out and guide them towards Christ. His music reveals how the power of God can transform a once-troubled teen living the fast life into a soldier of Christ armed with the Word.
