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.

Ever since I began volunteering for this organization, I've felt a resurgence in self-motivation and pride in knowing that I'm making an impact on community. I believe there is no other charity that is more winning and passionate about changing lives as this one. The hard work and dedication put into this charity by its leaders are evident by Be the Star You Are!®'s steady growth and stunning accomplishments. This organization extends its help in multiple ways, whether it may be from inviting guest authors to speak in its radio program or collecting and donating books to help fight against illiteracy. While working with Cynthia, I can truly sense her incredible dedication towards all of whom Be the Star You Are!® serves. It's a rewarding experience working for this charity!

It has been my pleasure to know Cynthia Brian and her talk show Be The Star That You Are for many years. Recently I broke off from my career in public relations to pursue a dream in opening my own equine assisted therapy business. So I have had the unique experience of both booking guests on Cynthia's show for over a decade and getting the glowing responses from our clients as to what a consummate professional she is but also just this past month was invited to be a guest on the show and got to experience first hand the truths behind all those credits. Be The Star That You Are is a very special showcase and brings to light so many very important issues, ideas, and concepts that truly stands to educate, inform and enlighten the audience to cutting edge therapies, lifestyle missions and tips to lead a productive and fulfilling life. Cynthia brings this cadence with each show and also makes everything she talks about interesting, I think because she is genuinely engaged in learning and growing for herself which makes it an open and inviting platform for her listeners. It becomes clear that she is passionately guiding this program and its purpose to help those around her to live more fully and with happiness. It is my pleasure and honor to be a part of this mission!

Be The Star You Are ("BTSYA") is a wonderful charity and radio program linking authors with positive messages to those who can benefit most - at-risk children and families. Cynthia Brian is a dedicated and extremely talented host and leader for BTSYA. Cynthia and BTSYA allowed me to bring my message of purpose, passion and ocean-awareness in The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob to the public and has distributed my books to children who othewise would not have access to them. In this way, BTSYA is a critical link between authors and publishers like me and the families and children with the most to gain from our work. I am grateful to have been selected as a BTSYA guest author.

Since 1998 I have had the privilege of writing, producing, and hosting the weekly radio show, Starstyle-Be the Star You Are! under the auspices of Be the Star You Are!® charity. What started out as a small broadcast has transformed into an internationally acclaimed positive media program that is fundamental to the outreach of the charity. The program is proud to be part of the Voice America/World Talk Radio network. More than 2000 authors and experts have been interviewed.
