We had the good fortune of connecting with Antong Bruse Wane Lucky and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Antong Bruse, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
The value of investing into others and Integrity. I believe real value for one’s self is created when you are not afraid to support, bring out and realize the value of others. Operating in pure integrity is the highest service one can administer to others.

What should our readers know about your business?
We are in the social entrepreneur space. We are a non profit with an unique niche of inspiring a new brand of leaders we call OGU. This is a subset of the population who has an influence that if realized can change a generation of youth. Our ability to help shape character of these OGU members unlocks characteristics that has a market advantage in this current climate of violence in urban communities, music etc. We train equip and then catalyze our members to address violence by way of effectively impact youth. We encourage members to become effectively active within their own communities or circle of influence. We teach that you must develop listening skills and engage as a peer vs a teacher, develop trust and walk alongside youth. I am proud to say that our OGU members are effecting change in their communities. They are solutions focused.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would show them pockets of the work being done, real people who could attest to the work done and how it affected them. I would take them to Bonton Farms to witness an iteration of this belief in people in action plus nice food. The next day I would take them by another good friend restaurant Cafe Mometum to eat to witness juveniles working professionally in a nice upscale restaurant setting. Then I would end in a community impacted by OGU to allow the realized impact of this subset of people adding real value to their communities.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to acknowledge my life long mentor of 20 years Bishop Omar Jahwar (May God be pleased with his soul) He is the epitome of a great teacher and wise sage. He taught and modeled the type of man I aspire to continue being. His love of God, his knowledge, commitment to family, community and his fellowman has helped me to become somewhat successful in my own life. His personal mentor ship to me has helped me to withstand the test of time. I dedicate my life to him. Thank you Bishop Omar Jahwar I am forever indebted to you.
