Boris from I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY to show THE WRITE STUFF contestants what they "Can Do"
The life of twenty-one year old Boris "Can Do" Kuperman has not been the easiest. Finding himself in trouble with the law at an early age, he was able to rise above the negativity aground him and mature into a young man that many young and old can look to for inspiration. In 2008 he was seen nationally as one of thirteen candidates competiting on national television to be the assistant of Sean "P. Diddy" Combs on VH1's I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY. Now in 2009 among the many endeavors he finds himself involved in, Kuperman is lending his support to America's first literary reality show The Write Stuff (http://www.thewritestufftv.com).
"Boris and I were introduced to each other while I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY was airing," say Cyrus A. Webb, Creator and Executive Producer of The Write Stuff. He interviewed Boris several times during the show (see http://bloggingiwanttoworkfordiddy.blogspot.com) and the two later worked together on the Hip Hop and Books Literacy Campaign that launched during the summer of 2008. "He is one of those people who you can't help but be impressed with. I'm glad to call him not only an associate but a friend as well."
Since appearing on the hit reality show he has continued networking with movers and shakers across the country. When Webb asked him about working with The Write Stuff, he jumped at the chance. Why? Kuperman answers this way:
"The Write Stuff serves as an innovative and creative alternative to standard reality shows that focus on individual personalities rather than on skill and/or talent. As a participant in a personality-based show, I have up close and personal knowledge of the pitfalls that exist when a houseful of larger than life people gather to compete against each other in a contest based upon personality, appeal, and who might be the most pushy of contenders."
Kuperman will not only be a celebrity judge on the show but a guest during the finale of the show, sharing with the three finalists about his experience on television. "This show will provide the opportunity to dedicated, young writers to obtain a book deal and receive access to the best in the business with regard to improving writing skills and becoming established in the writing profession," he says. "Although the lights and fun of television can be exciting and captivating, finding ones-self in the spotlight of public life can also lead to a quandry of questions with regard to self-fortitude, staying on task, and commitment to one's goals."
He will let the finalists know what to expect when the taping of the show is over and it is seen all over the world on television and the internet. "I believe this is the toughest test of being a reality television show contestant...staying grounded in plans for the future while enjoying the present acclaim of quick celebrity status. While living in the house on my reality show, tempers would frequently fly and unlike minded personalities would often clash. However, ultimately, we all must put ourselves back in the real world of our daily lives and can take the opportunities, lessons, and challenges of reality television with us to serve our lives and the lives of others for the better. I can contribute to the Write Stuff experience by providing the contestants with perceptions and observations of the reality show experience that they will likely not find elsewhere."
Kuperman will be joined by other celebrity guests including New York Times Bestselling authors Steve Berry and Scott Sigler. Additional information about Boris can be found at http://www.myspace.com/toplaw or http://www.boriscando.
