When she was introduced to Cassandra at the Chicago Ideas Week Master Class Guns: Solutions and Action, it took Disu a minute to realize that this was the motivated Harper High student she had heard so much about, Cassandra Murff. For her part, Murff—now a freshman at DePaul University and the founder of Mission Motivators, a mentoring program at Harper High—knew immediately whom she was meeting. Disu’s activism and rapping career keep her in the spotlight; just this month, she released a new music video and showed up in The Chicago Tribune.

“I always speak in front of a group of adults,” Murff said of the experience, where she shared her story with around 230 area youth and brought the room to “tears,” according to Disu. “I finally had the opportunity to go out and speak to kids my age and a little younger.”
