As we transition from the summer months to the crisp chill of Fall, September is the month to remember. In observance of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Royal C Pop, an artist management, production, and publishing company is proud to present Falyn Vega, a 17- year-old aspiring singer. With performances like singing at "Let It Go" at Radio City Hall under her belt, her story has only just begun. Falyn is here to shine, sing, and share her story as a Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor. As the face of the ‘I Am’ campaign, Falyn will perform an original song ‘I Am A Free Bird’ during the kick off event at Madison Square Garden on September 13.

“I was really excited when A Free Bird reached out to me for the “I Am” campaign,” said Falyn Vega. “I always feel really great about helping other kids in need.”

It has been a powerful 3 years of remission for Falyn and if you’re wondering where she found the strength, music and the arts are among the top of the list. She was able to find freedom from a life-threatening disease through the powers of art and she is going to take us on an amazing and inspiring journey throughout this campaign.

The process in itself has been more than exciting as collaborations were put into place to create a brilliant work of art. Royal C Pop has been working closely with A Free Bird Organization, a non-profit that provides magical opportunities in the arts for children ages 4-18 as they face their own fight against cancer. “I Am A Free Bird” is an original piece written by Godni Amir, president and founder of both A Free Bird Organization and Royal C Pop.

“We, at Royal C Pop, are committed to supporting this community of artists that has fought life-threatening illnesses,” said Godni, founder of Royal C Pop. “Our artists will be spreading their personal messages, raising awareness for childhood cancer, and healing through their creative processes.”

The collaboration also includes song production by Sony music producer Synematik, ensemble vocalists Corey Chorus and Kim Viera, who have worked with artists including Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Lil Wayne, and was mixed and mastered by Ross Petersen, who has also worked with Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, and the Backstreet Boys.

It doesn’t stop there, during the ‘I Am’ campaign, we will all be encouraged to participate by sharing our idea of what it means to be “A Free Bird”. With the help of social media, we will show the unique and creative ways that allow us to express ourselves while also promoting happiness and empowerment in our global community.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

Poetry On Odyssey: I was I am

A poem for those struggling with who they were.

207
views

it seems almost like a page

in someone else's book now


how there was

a time that i thought

i could have been happy

with someone like you


a million years before

i knew who i was

and that i should mean so much more

than i ever did to you


i almost can't remember

the way you held your elbows or

the way you said the letter o or

the way you told me goodnight


it seems now

that all i can recall

are my relentless tears and

the fear that this was the love

that everyone spoke about


the fear that this

was what id have to live with

for the rest of my life


i remember those late nights

just you and i

you always got what you wanted

i was always too afraid to upset you

looking back i wonder why

i couldnt leave you then


but you kept me

my misery maintained until

i felt like nothing


that night was the record scratch

When I knew my life

Shouldn't be like this.


It wasn't until I finally broke our ties

That I started to remember

Who I am.

But my mind is clear now.

I can remember

How strong I am,

How perfectly happy I am

On my own.


It seems almost like a page

In someone else's book now.


You're finally fading away.

I just wish my scars could fade as quickly.
