Shaun Boothe's "Live your Legacy" Performance

Westminster was happy to welcome Shaun Boothe's "Live Your Legacy" performance on Tuesday November 14th for students K-8 as part of our Arts Enrichment Package. Mr. Boothe's presentation supports and reinforces our foci on bullying prevention, growth mindset, perseverance, resilience and self-empowerment.   

In his inspiring multimedia performance and motivational journey, Shaun Boothe discussed strength, character, media and issues of identity and diversity. Through his biographical rap songs he captured the achievements of influential figures such as Terry Fox, Malala Yousafzai, and Bob Marley in a unique way. Shaun repackaged history through rap music in a way that connected with students and reinforced the importance of living a meaningful life.

Shaun's message reinforces the work that we are doing with our students at Westminster on social justice, equity, social diversity and our responsibility towards one another. He reinforced that our personal legacy is how we make an impact on the people around us and in how we treat one another with courage and kindness. 
If you are interested in learning more about his performance and message you are welcome to explore his website (, or watch his TedX talk for videos of his unique rap style biographies of social justice crusaders. These are also available on his Youtube channel (

Thank you for visiting us Mr. Boothe
