Congratulations are in order for 12-year-old Lil Bit Saucy as she made history as the first ever LEGO Kid Creative Director!
The talented rapper joined nine other young creatives to become a part of LEGO’s kids creative studio. LEGO’s kids creative studio focuses on showcasing and inspiring the imaginative superpowers of today’s youth.
“We’re thrilled to be able to empower kids to keep doing what they’ve been doing the last year and truly honor this creativity,” said Amanda Madore, Senior Brand Relations Manager at LEGO Systems, Inc in an interview with Essence Magazine. “We’ve seen the ways kids are reimagining play and the innovative ways they interact with their peers. We believe now is the perfect time to celebrate this creativity by turning over the creative reins to them, recognizing and rewarding kids for being the true creative superstars they are.”
If you haven’t seen her face or heard her name, make sure to start following her journey now. Robyn Johnson, aka Lil Bit Saucy, according to her official website, hails from the Chicago area and is unquestionably one to watch as “she delivers quality bars and flows jam packed with clever quotables that are caption worthy by kids and adults alike,” truly embracing her superpower as a prolific lyricist.
According to Essence, Lil Bit Saucy is often the youngest artist anywhere she perform. She has rapped freestyle over Nicki Minaj’s “Chun Li”, being the only kid at virtual rap cypher workshops. Highlighting just how talented Lil Bit Saucy truly is, local businesses in her area pay her to write rap jingles for them.
There were over 100 applications that were submitted to The LEGO Group and the Kids Creative Studio team. As a part of being selected as the first ever LEGO Kid Creative Director, this talented rising star will also receive $10,000 to go towards her future educational and creative endeavors.
Congratulations again, Robyn! We definitely cannot wait to see what the future holds for you!
