Your State Representatives
State Representative Kaylee R.
“I’m helping by doing the little stuff that WILL make a difference!”
Why Kaylee R. was Nominated:
I am nominating Kaylee because she, more than any other student I have known, is passionate about how to address the problem of Bullying. Several years ago, she did research into what others had been doing responding to Bullying. She put together her own program, Stars, that included some of the current best practices and presented it as a 4-H project. Kaylee also organized a “Love Yourself” project in which students were given the opportunity to make origami hearts, writing on them what they loved about themselves. She was an active organizer/participant for our Unity Week last year which included several activities, such as presenting a short movie on Bullying with discussion, posting positive, personalized sticky notes on everyone’s locker and having students write on paper links ways to prevent bullying. This year, following Christmas break, she will be working with the Middle School students in our school to help them prevent bullying and encourage resilience.

Fear tells us that we’re about to go through something difficult without guidance, and that we are alone. It tells us we won’t make it through to the other side. And, most of all, when a glimmer of light does show up as hope, fear is right there to tell us it’s not worth moving towards. Fear loves it when we don’t move.
Don’t hold yourself back from your greatness just because you’ve made some mistakes or because other people – or life – has hurt you.
The older we get, the easier it is to look back and identify times when we didn’t act as cool as we thought we were.
