Chasing Reality Disguised As A Dream: The New Education Of Suli Breaks

There are many things you can find in London on any given day: Trafalgar Square (love the fountain/beware the birds), Rain, Saville Row (my favorite clothing haunt), More rain, and SULI BREAKS, who has taken the Spoken Poetry World the same way as Usain Bolt in the 200m.  Not too much is known about the 'twenty something' spoken word prodigy (other than his recent YouTube success 'I Will Not Let An Exam Grade Decide My Fate', which went viral, garnering 2 million views and gaining speed) aside from his works becoming the voice of new reason in a world where students are measured by grade and not by talent. The video has prompting a response from the Government as it sheds an interesting light on the European Educational System.
Suli's emphasizes the need to 'inspire people's thinking towards education', saying '...people should understand that just because you're not good at a subject doesn't mean you won't succeed, just as if you're good at something, it doesn't mean you should pursue it if it is NOT what you truly want...'

 As a follow-up, he released another video known as 'The American'T Dream' is a sobering view on people who survive the Rat Race yet never take the time to truly live in it.

 "...If you don't build your dreams, someone else will always hire you to build theirs..." 

 Not one to rest, Suli is currently in the process of releasing an EP in the UK known as THE DORMROOM due out at the end of this month, so check it out!
