State Representative Jalyn M.

Jalyn - Oregon Student Rep Profile Image“I try my hardest to include everyone.”

-Jalyn

Why Jalyn was Nominated:

I believe that Jalyn would be a great leader in our school to co-lead the We Dine Together along with other nominees (Alicia and Sydney). Gardiner Middle School is one of the middle schools that feed into Oregon City High. Shaylee, the Be Strong Rep at Oregon City High, attended GMS and met with us to discuss what she does and how we can support/introduce the program at our middle school. Jalyn is outgoing, kind, smart and takes an interest in ALL students. Middle school is an awkward time in a teen’s life and Jalyn wants to bring a sense of unity for everyone.

State Representative Briona G.

State Representative Kiana H.

Kiana - Oregon Student Rep Profile Image“I choose to Be Strong in my high school by supporting students around me. I struggled with anxiety and depression for five years so I know how hard and challenging life can be and how hard obstacles can be. I know school can feel like a lonely place or a place that makes you feel anxious but I want to be a support for others to go to if they feel alone if their being bullied or they just need someone to talk to. I want to be a voice to those who are struggling in silence and are afraid to get help. I choose to Be Strong and I choose to help others Be Strong.”

– Kiana

Why Kiana was Nominated:

I think Kiana would make a great leader for We Dine Together. Having experienced trauma and issues with friends, she understands how it feels to be alone. She has recently started trying to channel her sadness into helping others and it has had really positive affects. She has the kindness to help students feel comfortable. When she takes something on she sticks with it and does it to the best of her abilities. She is also good at communicating with adults in order to get things done! I believe we have a real need for this program at our school and I would love to see Kiana get it started.
