E’Lisa Davidson, Media Instructor, was raised and resides on the West Side of Chicago. Her writing ventures began with poetry. At the age of 10, while watching older MCs, she figured she could do the same — and better. Thus the quest to be the ultimate MC began. Joining Street-Level Youth Media helped further her dreams: by attending workshops she learned the lingo of audio production and created her own CD at the age of 13 under the name “Lisa Lust.” Working with Street-Level staff her thirst for knowledge of the world grew, steering into social activism contributing her time and talents to numerous organizations in the fight for human rights.
