State Representative Jazelle F.

“I choose to be strong at my school by taking a stand against hate, judgement, neglect and bullying. I hope I can inspire others to do the same.”

-Jazelle

Why Jazelle F was Nominated:

I’d actually like to nominate two of my 11th grade students. Maria and Jazelle are amazing young ladies with strong hearts and I’ve personally seen them put a stop to bullying on our campus on many occasions.  Not only that, but Jazelle and Maria are always first to welcome a new student and make sure that student feels comfortable and at ease in our school’s social environment.  Earlier this year, when we had several new students join our school due to the closure of a neighboring charter school, Jazelle and Maria were instrumental in making sure everyone greeted the students with respect and open arms.  This type of situation can be very difficult for a new student due to the close bonds our juniors have already established over the three years they have been together.  Jazelle and Maria worked as a team to be particularly mindful of students who could have been easy targets for bullying.  I always saw them making sure to include the new students in class discussions and during collaborative learning activities.  During the live broadcast, I saw Jazelle and Maria be truly touched by the words and experiences of the presenters.  They asked me politely if they could use their phones to download the suggested app in order to receive the full experience that Be Strong has to offer.  I believe that they each truly have the heart of a leader and will continue to be integral in ensuring equity and kindness in the classroom and beyond.  I hope we can give these young women the recognition they deserve.

State Representative Robbyn C.

“If you see bullying happen and you don’t do anything about it, that’s pretty much just as bad as doing it yourself.”

-Robbyn

Why Robbyn was Nominated:

I would like to nominate my student, Robbyn. She is one of the most positive and upbeat students I have ever encountered. She is a strong, smart young woman and she’s fearless. Robbyn is always helpful and kind to her classmates and she has an ability to put people at ease. I have seen her offer support to students who are struggling and upset on numerous occasions. Robbyn is deserving of this recognition and I thank you for the opportunity to acknowledge her efforts. Thank you for your consideration.
