RMHC Student Completes USF's Entrepreneurial Program,
I-Corps

Congratulations to Aysha Tenouri for completing the I-Corps program at USF, an entrepreneurial program funded by the National Science Foundation that provides infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training and modest funding as students work to build their business ventures. USF is one of the 100 national sites designated for this training and one of only two in Florida. Before joining the RMHC Program at USF, Aysha was a children's gymnastics teacher and also taught a children's music and movement program called Kindermusik. In her first year as a graduate student, her mother encouraged her to create a music and movement program for seniors and bring it to local assisted living and memory care facilities. She created a therapeutic music program, now known as InstruMix, which is a one-of-a-kind program that stimulates the mind and body as participants play various percussion instruments like egg shakers, sticks, bells, castanets, and scarves while moving to music. InstruMix can be done standing or in a chair which makes it the perfect wellness activity for people of all ability levels.
