State Representative Theresa D.

Theresa D Profile Image“I live by the quote, ‘Be the person you needed when you felt alone.’ I sit here as the person I needed. I hope that by doing this, I can inspire people to see the beauty & uniqueness of adversity & empower them to Be Strong.”

-Theresa

Why Theresa Was Nominated:

Theresa is the very definition of compassion, kindness, integrity, and acceptance of all human beings. She was severely bullied at her high school and is now becoming very active in creating a true bullying-free world, especially in the public-school system. Bullying-prevention is her major platform being a contestant in the upcoming Miss Houston Pageant March 2018. She has always been a child and now teenager who stands up for what is right and speaks out against bullying. She also is an advocate and volunteer for special needs children and adults at The Special Angels of The Woodlands. Theresa would make a wonderful Texas Representative, being a part of this organization will help enable her to have a voice in the school districts in our area and in our state.

State Representative Justin D.

-Justin D.

Why Justin Was Nominated:

I am nominating Justin because he is dedicated and works very hard. He carries himself with integrity and is always kind and honest. There is never a day when Justin isn’t working to make someone smile. He is not afraid to talk in front of people and is very good at making others comfortable talking about how they feel. He is always eager to help anyone. He, himself, has been through bullying and because of this, he can relate to those who are going through it now. He also didn’t let being bullied stop him from doing all the things he likes and he still continues to be happy and go on about his life, which shows how strong of a person Justin is.

State Representative Kiyah S.

Kiyah - Texas Student Rep Profile Image

“I want to make sure that people can go to school and not worry about being bullied for what they possess and everything that makes them unique.”

-Kiyah

Why Kiyah was Nominated:

As a President of Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc., a national humanitarian organization, that oversees a youth group, Top Teens of America, the Lake Houston Chapter in Kingwood, Texas is proud to present the name of Kiyah Kianah, Second Vice President of Top Teens of America, to be a member of Be Strong Student State Representative Program. Kiyah can best be described as an academic scholar, 3.7 overall GPA, and a leader who fosters the belief that everyone matters and should be treated with dignity and respect. She will proudly echo the message, “I am not a bystander; I am someone who stands by victims of bullying.” Kiyah will be an ambassador for implementing campaigns and rallies throughout the great state of Texas which will echo the call, “No More.” She believes that every person deserves to come to school, join activities and pursue their dreams of matriculating in a college without fear or intimidation. It is mandated that every member of Top Teens of America enrolls and completes a bullying initiative. Kiyah did more than just enrolled; she took the lead in sharing that bullying comes in many different forms, from cyber-bulling to physical bullying, but she believes it’s all wrong, and it has to stop. Bullying has a real negative effect on a person’s life. She researched and shared statistics on those who are constantly bullied can be pushed to the breaking point, where they could end up hurting themselves or others. She would introduce a campaign to raise awareness to the issues of bullying. For the campaign kick-off, she would hold a rally for students to share their personal stories and experience with bullying. She would incorporate counselors and/or psychologists to serve as resources. Kiyah’s leadership service will further enhance her ability to mobilize students to be active bystanders. Her leadership as president of Student Body, Miss National Youth Achiever (NYA), Crowned in Winston-Salem, NC, Social Outreach Society, Member-at-Large, Student Council, Best Buddies, basketball, cheerleading and Drama Club, to name a few, have strengthened Kiyah’s self-confidence, which enables her to stand up and stand against a wrong. She will be an active bystander who will do far more than just watch. She will: mobilize the compassion of witnesses to step in and stop the bullying, support the target and reduce the trauma, be a positive influence in curbing a bullying episode, encourage other students to support a school climate of caring and report a bullying incident since 85% of bullying occurs when an adult is not present. Kiyah Kianah should be your prime candidate for the “Be Strong Student State Representative Program for the State of Texas.

State Representative Aidan C.

Aidan - Texas Student Rep Profile Image

“Even a small gesture, like a smile or a “hello,” can make a difference in someone’s day. So, I ask you, do you have what it takes to Be Strong in your community?”

-Aidan

Why Aidan was Nominated:

I have the privilege of nominating Aidan to this amazing program. He is a young man who truly empathizes with the struggles that others face – whether child or adult. Due to his personality and character, he wishes to always include everyone, listens to all sides of a story before making up his mind, and supports those people who are struggling most with whatever they happen to be facing. He is considered the “therapist” of his friend group. Aidan has felt that he is deeply connected to the student body and peers; however, he has not found his niche in the current extra-curricular environment. After discussing this issue with his father, I believe that Aidan would be the perfect candidate to nominate for your program – he is empathetic, kind to others, loves to communicate and interact with new people, and doesn’t always follow the mainstream thinking. Aidan would be an unequivocal addition to your program.

State Representative Farrah G.

Farrah - Texas Student Rep Profile Image

“I am inspired to help others find their voice and be able to come out of their shell to do great things.”

-Farrah

Why Farrah was Nominated:

Farrah is one of the most dedicated, selfless, and positive students I know. She advocates for positive change within her community as the President of Juniorettes and takes on multiple responsibilities in her position as historian within the student council, always getting the job done with a smile on her face. When I watched #wedinetogether on the national news, the first person I thought to nominate was Farrah because of her relationship with the student body, disposition and dedication I have seen time and time again. When I told her about the program, she was so thankful that I had brought it to her because it hit close to home. It was at that point I realized that Farrah went through this exact thing of being the new kid and feeling so alone years ago. She is one of the strongest people I know, though, and came out of it as resilient as ever. I saw the joy she had in her eyes about this program, and I know that she will make this program one of her top priorities in our school this year, setting the foundation for years to come. She will be a true ambassador for the cause, and I will be right by her side along with other passionate students in our organization to make #wedinetogether come to life in our school!
