The inaugural Break the Internet Fest (BTI Fest) launched last September to a crowd of nearly 5,000 young millennials hosted by Karen Civil at Gateway DC. Break The Internet fest was curated by Washington, D.C. native Mia Fields-Hall and Brooklyn, New York native Isaiah Davis. The outdoor festival was created to celebrate young millennial culture around the country. The festival isn’t your typical festival however, the sole purpose is to gift scholarships to deserving college and graduate students who are leaving their mark on the world. It doesn’t stop there though, the couple also plans to gift start up funds to eligible millennial entrepreneurs at this years festival.
“Young millennials are today’s trendsetters and change agents. It’s our hope that BTI Fest will inspire them to ‘break the internet’ with their accomplishments,” explained founder Isaiah Davis.
The festival which will take place again this September at Gateway D.C. is a chance for young millennials around the country to be recognized for the good they do in school, their communities and the world. Fields-Hall, a Hofstra University Graduate and Davis, a Morgan State University graduate know first hand how expensive furthering your education could be and wanted to create an event to honor young millennials.
When discussing the concept behind the festival, BTI Fest co-founder Mia Fields-Hall explains, “We’re inspired by young millennials like Tristan Walker (Bevel), Jewel Burks(PartPics), Christopher Gray (Scholly) and Jessica O. Matthews (Uncharted Play) who are hanging the world in their own way. We want to shine the light on this group of world changers by hosting an event that celebrates them and their achievements.
