Knowledge Rap

13Dec09

For your listening pleasure?

Just a couple months ago, Watertown 17-year-old Kevin Phu was writing rhymes in his bedroom for fun, with no idea that he’d soon star in a rap video that’s been seen by not just friends and family but by his teachers, school officials, and people across the country.


The video by Phu, a Watertown High senior, was chosen as one of 10 finalists from over 600 entries in a US Department of Education contest on the importance of getting an education.

Riffing off a challenge issued in September by President Obama to America’s students to take responsibility for their education, the contest called for two-minute videos on the theme “I Am What I Learn.’’

This young man’s going into the Navy to get his education.

Phu hopes to pursue a career as an advanced electronics technician, operating and managing communication and radar equipment on warships.

While many other seniors are fretting about where they’ll be next year, Phu said he can’t wait to get on with the next chapter of his life.
