Be Someone is an organization by a former police officer, Orrin Hudson. After hearing one too many violent news reports, he decided to dedicate his life to teaching kids to make the right choices using the game of Chess as a metaphor.

“Heads up, pants up, grades up, don’t give up” is his motto, along with “Push pawns, not drugs”.

Orrin is on a 50 state tour in an effort to reach the lives of a million children. His YouTube video features anecdotes and clippings from news appearances, as well as Orrin rapping to kids to “keep their head in the game”.
