Richard "So Rich" Paul is a social entrepreneur, youth advocate & mentor, street interventionist, rapper, interviewer, and video director. He was recently awarded the New York State Commendation award for his work with street and gang involved youth and their families in Long Island.
So Rich was deeply involved in street life from the ages of 12 to 22, which led to him serving a sentence of eleven years in state prison. It is this experential insight in conjunction with a deep dedication to ensure that youth do not make the same mistakes he did, that enables So Rich to connect with young people mentally and emotionally. So Rich mentors 25-50 youth at a time and has connected with hundreds of street involved youth in New York.
Street Intervention Education: So Rich hosts presentations, workshops, and panels on topics such as "impulse control"; "Forgiveness and healing from our past"; gang involvement"; "rivalry"; " Gun violence and its ripple effect" and "The influence of people places, and things" among other topics. These presentations are for schools, group homes, carceral facilites, or anywhere they are needed.
INTERVIWER: So Rich partners with Big Herc's FRESH OUT platform on Youtube , which boast 550 thousand subscribers, as the East Coast anchor for the platform. He is also creating the So Rich Podcast to highlight the innate quality, Value, and Richness of people through their stories.
DIRECTOR: So Rich writes impactful music video treatments. This includes story line, solo, and group visuals.
So Rich Entertainment is built on the idea that while we as people are in the pursuit of financial riches, we should never lose sight of the understanding that we are So Rich in many other areas: "So Rich in Family", "So Rich in Community", "So Rich in Love", "So Rich in Courage", and "So Rich in Resilience", to name a few. This is never to be forgotten or underappreciated.
