Saweetie was among 2022’s standout new rappers.
She released the hit song ‘Closer’ with H.E.R., which earned 27 million views.
However, the 29-year-old singer isn’t just focused on her career.
She recently announced the launch of a youth financial literacy initiative for teaching young people about money management and financial planning.
Introducing Saweetie’s Icy Baby Foundation
The “Icy Baby Foundation” initiative offers various resources like workshops, online courses, and one-on-one coaching.
Through these resources, young people will develop the skills and understanding they need to make informed financial decisions.
Saweetie, real name Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper, was inspired to launch the initiative after seeing the financial struggles of many young people in her community.
As someone who grew up in a low-income neighborhood, the rapper knows how tough it is to become financially stable.
The 29-year-old hopes to help Black youths break the cycle of financial insecurity and get the tools they need to build a better financial future.
Icy Baby Foundation is currently active in Las Vegas and Sacramento, Oakland.
Applications closed on December 30, but more openings should be in the coming months.
Giving Youths A Leg Up
The initiative teaches underserved youths about budgeting, saving, and investing and helps them understand credit and debt.
It also offers guidance on how to start a business and make a financial plan.
Along with the educational resources, Icy Baby Foundation also gives young people access to financial advisors and experts who can offer personalized support and guidance.
The initiative is free to all qualified participants and will soon be available to youths across the country.
Saweetie is committed to using her platform and influence to make a positive difference in the world and is excited to offer this opportunity to young people.
She believes education is the key to unlocking a better future and wants to do everything in her power to give young people the tools they need to succeed.
The launch of Saweetie’s Icy Baby Foundation has received widespread support and excitement.
Unsurprisingly, many people have praised the rapper for her efforts to empower young people and give back to her community.
We hope the initiative will have a meaningful impact on the financial futures of Black youths and reduce economic inequality in the long term.
