I have worked with Cynthia Brian, Founder, for a number of years and have always been extremely impressed with her unbelievable dedication to Starstyle-Be the Star you Are! She works tirelessly, especially to support those who are less fortunate, and does so in a very professional and upbeat manner.

This radio program, which has been broadcasting live every week since 1998, is extremely positive and well-deserving of many awards.

Though I haven't worked with Be the Star You Are for an exceptionally long time, in just the year and a half that I've been involved, I have seen just how talented Cynthia is in directing the organization to pursue greater and more expansive goals. Cynthia is always looking for new ways to improve the mission of the charity, and reaching out to provide literacy to more people and youth across the world.

Cynthia Brian manages Be the Star You Are! in an exceptionally gifted manner. Her enthusiasm and motivation serve as tremendous support for not only the people served by the organization, but also the volunteers and staff working for BTSYA! She's a natural leader. I've worked with her, performed on radio with her, and promoted her and the nonprofit's efforts in my publications for several years. She never fails to impress, and her position as role-model has catapulted others into new lives, all because they crossed the paths of Cynthia and BTSYA! Phenomenal example.

Be the Star You Are! is a phenomenally empowering organization for teens, teen advocates, writers and human beings period. I've followed their rise for six years, participated in the radio shows, donated to their causes and even written a chapter for their recent project Be the Star You Are! For Teens - the chapter on HOPE. I can't say enough good about these people and their leader, Cynthia Brian, a true Renaissance woman who lets nothing stand in her way to do good for others. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan. C. Hope Clark, Editor FundsforWriters Writer's Digest's 101 Best Websites for Writers, 2001-2010 Ten years of recognized excellence

I've provided community outreach and acted as radio coordinator for BTSYA for over a year now. I'm delighted to be a part of such a positive, uplifting organization. The all volunteer staff is a dedicated group that upholds the mission of BTSYA which is a direct result of its founder, Cynthia Brian.



Cynthia Brian is a tireless director whose mission is to uplift and empower touches everyone she encounters.



As an extension of her charity, her radio program broadcasting since 1998, continues to touch lives by promoting authors and experts that send positive messages and important educational information to better lives.

We have been working with BE THE STAR YOU ARE for many, many years. Our company has donated computers and also done some software development for this important 501(c)3. I am always impressed with how much they get done for a given dollar of donation!! We donate whenever we can, time, money, and advise.
