Erica Louise Richards – Jamaica

Whether you know her as “Miss Rica” or “Rica G.”, you know her definitively as an educator, lyricist, and youth advocate. On a mission to serve as a catalyst for liberation throughout the diaspora using fellowship, technology, and the arts, Rica strives to ensure that our stories are told and preserved with integrity. “Everything that I am intersects with everything that I do,” proclaims the American-born Jamaican child of her “Motherland’s Motherland.” Rica comes alive in the moments when the audience or group of students connect with her work. That is the oneness of her craft.
