HASSAHN LIGGINS, CEO
Whether behind the scenes or stealing the scene, Hassahn Liggins (HP) has had success in the entertainment industry as an accomplished Hip-Hop artist, songwriter, journalist, and co-author of the book "Soles For Sale", which is currently part of the curriculum of several Chicago Public Schools and colleges. HP is also the Producer/Writer of the documentary film and web series, DMOOS. The native Chicagoan considers himself a "Certified World Changer!" Hassahn believes in changing the world for the better and he breathes those sentiments through his motto, "Instead of waiting for the miracle to happen, be the miracle that makes it happen." He connected with his long-time, fellow DePaul University graduate, and confidant, Kristen Perteet, to create the life-changing organization, "Be The Miracle." Together, Hassahn and Kristen plan on impacting the world with powerful, profound, purposeful, and positive energy. He is also the father of two young kings.
Kristen Perteet, COO
Born and raised in Chicago, Kristen Perteet has worked with youth in the field of education for over fifteen (15) years. She is a graduate of DePaul University, Spertus Institute, and the Illinois Center for Broadcasting. Her passions are family, her dog Lala, friends, and sports. While working with students she preaches the importance of education and life skills and using those tools to help strengthen the community. It is disturbing to Kristen that the beautiful communities of Chicago are being destroyed by the increased violence against our youth. She believes that it is time for the people of Chicago to take back their communities and provide a safe place for the youth to grow into the leaders they are meant to be in this world. It is that belief in the city and her desire to make a difference that led Kristen and her long-time friend, Hassah Liggins, to create "Be The Miracle." One of Kristen's dreams is to do voice-over work for the true crime shows.
