Introducing MC Samra

11-year-old Finglas rapper honoured for anxiety track at ESB Creative Tech Fest 2020

“I’m very grateful to my youth worker Mick, the Finglas Youth Centre and TechSpace for everything they have done to help me this last year,” Shaun told RTÉ Entertainment after he arrived home from school on Wednesday.  

Take a moment to watch this powerful video and hear Shaun’s story. 

Inspired by a conversation with his youth worker, Mick, where Mick suggested Shaun rap about something personal, he wrote about how his anxiety was negatively impacting him, and his family.

Shaun went on to win Techspacer of the Year during the annual Creative Technology Week Awards, celebrating the innovation and creativity of young people who take part in Kinia’s education programmes. 

Shaun has since voiced a campaign for Kinia called #FlipTheScript, which aims to show how Kinia empowers young people to unlock their passions and potential through the creative use of technology. The creative animation and rap visualises how perceived negatives in teenage behaviours can, with the right tools and support, become positives for young people on their journey in creating their own brighter future. The campaign is currently on radio, VOD, digital and social.
