Within all of the marvelous artistry New York City has to offer, an entire sector of creatives is constantly being overlooked. These are our potential future creative leaders overcoming adversities within marginalized New York City communities. These youth create magnificent works of art born out of obstacles, and would thrive in a more positive career direction if only provided with the same exposure, tools, and opportunities as other creatives.

This social disconnect is what led photographer, hip hop artist, and founder of The Creative Youth Society, Sharon Miller (P.K.A. Pri the Honeydark) to create the social photo project The Creative Ambassadors Project — an empowering youth portrait exhibit celebrating our future creative leaders. The project focuses on empowering the voices of underserved creative youth by presenting them in powerful photographic editorial-style portraits based on their creative career aspirations.

The goal of this project is to build youth self-esteem and help break society’s negative perceptions of youth adversity — including homelessness, the justice system, foster care, and financial insecurity. The Creative Ambassadors Project is ongoing and open to creative youth ages 13-24 of all races, backgrounds, and gender identities.

  • Sharon Miller (P.K.A. Pri the Honeydark)

    Sharon Miller, professionally known as Pri the Honeydark, is an award winning hip-hop artist turned portrait photographer, visual artist and creative educator from Queens, New York.

    It was through an introduction to the arts as a child that she began to realize her own possible greatness and used the arts as a means to navigate her childhood obstacles, such as poverty and homelessness.  Pri’s early introduction to the arts would later transform into a plethora of multidisciplinary creative skills, including photography, carpentry, visual & fine arts, exhibition design, music production and performance.

    Pri is a passionate believer in using her photography, and artistic practice for social change, with a heavy focus on marginalized communities. She founded an organization called The Creative Youth Society, where she teaches underrepresented NYC youth skills that empower them to seek careers within the creative industries. Pri also teaches visual arts and photography within the public school and non-profit sectors, and was recently named Sony Alpha Female for her social photo project, “The Creative Ambassadors”, where she photographed editorial style portraits of aspiring youth in underserved communities based on their creative career goals. The project was featured in Photoville NY, Click Magazine and on NY1 News.
