Charles Hamilton Houston Institute staff assistant Ernest Owens(Applejaxx) releases his new music video titled: NERDS. Ernest is developing The Nerd Project at the institute providing content that promotes education, innovation and creative action.
Ernest presented N.E.R.D at Harvard Law School’s “Thinks Big” event in July 2013. The talk featured the meaning of N.E.R.D, being a “rich kid, poor kid,” brand innovation and faith. Applejaxx adds, “We’re all nerds. College (education) is for everyone in the context of learning as a lifestyle. Nerds are the smart kids, outsiders, innovators, leaders and cool kids.”
