Your State Representatives
State Representative Ashley T.
“I don’t mind going against the norm. I do not want to listen to rumors & gossip. I refuse to spread them…That is bullying and I do not want to be a part of it.”
Why Ashley T. was Nominated:
Ashley is a member of the student bully prevention team. This year she shared her message of her experience with being bullied to the entire middle school and even reflected on moments when she herself did not always do the right thing at the right time. Ashley was brave enough to challenge the school to stand up for what is right and help everyone respect others. She is a student who is strong enough to overcome, self-reflect, and inspire others.

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.
