“One Man Can Change the World” serves as a homage to Big Sean’s late grandmother Mildred V. Leonard who broke through the ceilings of poverty, racism and sexism to become one of the first female Black Captains in WWII, before becoming one of the first Black female Police Officers in Detroit and serving an illustrious 30 year career with the Detroit Public School System as a teacher and counselor. Sean credits his grandmother for showing him that through hard work, commitment, perseverance and faith anything is possible. Now, with the support of Radio One, the One Man Can Change the World national contest looks to find movers and shakers who actively work to empower others and build community. “I’m incredibly excited to partner up with Radio One to recognize a deserving individual who has made it their mission to make a difference,” says Big Sean. “I’m looking forward to personally reviewing the video submissions and meeting the winner in Philadelphia at my performance at Made in America in September.” One lucky winner (and a guest) will win a prize with an estimated value of $4000 and personal time with Big Sean – priceless! The winning package includes: • Two roundtrip airline or train tickets from the closest market to the winner’s hometown city • Three night hotel accommodations for two • Two tickets to the Made In America Music Festival in Philadelphia, PA on September 5-6, 2015 • Two passes to a Big Sean meet and greet • $2,500 towards the winner’s 501(c) charity of choice
