Cardi B touts importance of education in return to her Bronx middle school; makes $100K donation

Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Cardi B was at her old stomping grounds this morning, visiting IS 232 in Morris Heights, where she attended school.

She spoke with school chancellor David Banks about her experience in the public school system and the importance of education. She also announced a $100,000 donation to the school.

“Where do you want to be in a few years… make sure you think long term,” she said, addressing the excited students.

The visit is part of a collaborative journey across the five boroughs with Community Capacity Development – a human justice organization seeking to wipe out systemic challenges in marginalized communities of color.

Cardi B has commended the organization for their work in gun violence prevention, youth mentoring and education.

K. Bain, the founder and executive director of CCD, says Cardi’s donation will mean a lot.

“She’s here to be a real model for the young people,” he said.

Director Desiree Resto told News 12 that much-needed funding would go to school performing arts and other areas that would prepare the students for success.
