State Representative Jayden W.

Jayden Student Profile Image“Being Strong, to me, is going out of my comfort zone to help others be happy. I try to do that every day and am always working on improving my methods.”

-Jayden

Why Jayden Was Nominated:

Jayden has a friendly disposition and is well-known and well-accepted by his peers. He is not shy. He is also a good student role model. Jayden has a heart for those who may be struggling or going through a hard time. He approached me about project he called Spread the Warmth over the winter. He went to local schools and started a collection drive for cold weather gear to give the disadvantaged in our community. Jayden will be a wonderful ambassador for Be Strong/We Dine Together. He is fearless and won’t hesitate to grow this organization on our campus. I believe that an initiative like We Dine Together can change the culture of our school, and Jayden is just the student to make it happen. He is tenacious and won’t give up easily.

State Representative Dorian W.

Dorian - LA Student Rep Profile Image“I choose to Be Strong in my school and my community by inspiring others, standing up for them and including them.”

-Dorian

Why Dorian Was Nominated:

Dorian learned at a young age that it is important to care about others and to be involved in the community. When hanging out with friends, he heard many stories about how they were bullied. He tried to stand up for classmates at school when they were bullied, but he was discouraged, being called a “tattletale” or told to sit down. This upset Dorian, who wanted to help. Dorian wrote and had published a book, called Dreamers Against Bullying, donating some of the proceeds to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Dorian also became the leader and organizer of Bikers Against Bullying, a local youth event that holds bike nights in his community. He takes pride in speaking at several schools and has created dance skits related to bullying prevention. Dorian wants other kids to know that they can stand up for themselves and others who are experiencing bullying, saying, “I just want to inspire others to do good things and let them know it is okay to speak up.” Dorian has received two proclamations to increase public awareness about the severity of bullying, one signed by Tommy Eschete, Mayor of Thibodaux, the other by John Bel Edwards, Governor of Louisiana. With his campaign #bekindpassiton, Dorian wants to spread kindness to all. A member of Big Dreamers Youth Foundation since the age of 5, he knows how to step up and be a leader. Dorian has also worked with the leaders of the local American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to speak up against bullycide. I believe he can help bring forth change for both youth and adults in our community.

State Representative Alvin C.

-Alvin

Why Alvin Was Nominated:

Alvin has a radiant personality; he is truly joyful. Being previously home-schooled, he came to a new place, filled with new faces, and had to begin making friends. He knows what being the new kid feels like. Alvin is always thoughtful, considerate and kind. His heart and character are second to none. It is with great pleasure that I nominate Alvin for Be Strong’s student ambassador program.
