Your State Representatives

State Representative Lauren W.

“I will help you – regardless of your age, orientation, gender, race or past mistakes to Be Strong…”

-Lauren

Why Lauren W. was Nominated:

In class today, a male student made an aside comment to a female student that was unnoticed by most but incredibly hurtful to his target. Lauren got up and walked across the room to that male student and told him that what he said was inappropriate, hurtful, and “not right.” When asked by peers what was said, she said, “I’m not going to repeat it.” She not only modeled how to courageously stand up to a peer when they are using micro aggressions to put down a fellow classmate, she also demonstrated how to not perpetuate the offense by shaming the erring student further.

State Representative Stephanie P.

“I choose to Be Strong in my school, community, and in the hearts of those around me by spreading kindness.”

-Stephanie

Why Stephanie was Nominated:

Stephanie witnessed unfriendly students at lunch one day who refused to eat with an individual student and she stood up for that student. She is always willing to sit with students who are eating alone or engage students in conversations. She always spreads kindness throughout our school community and has a smile ready for everybody she meets.

State Representative Chloe F.

“I choose to Be Strong by not being afraid to talk about mental illness, by being kind, and by being myself as outwardly as I can.”

-Chloe

Why Chloe was Nominated:

I’d like to nominate Chloe Forsyth as a Massachusetts State Representative for Be Strong. She has always been incredibly kind and helpful to absolutely everyone around her. She is not only a strong, impressive role model for all of her peers, but she also radiates positivity and encouragement. She came with me to the Boston House of Blues Concert for Jacob Sartorius to help me advocate, and she adored the cause and did an excellent job educating passersby on our organization. It is my intense belief that she would be an excellent fit for the role of representing Massachusetts for Be Strong. Chloe is extensively supportive of this organization and bullying-prevention, and she would do a wonderful job representing the state.
