BE THE STAR YOU ARE INC
May 5, 2010

Amid the darkness of drugs, violence, poverty, and illiteracy, Be the Star You Are! shines through, providing empowerment to women, families, and youths-at-risk through various programs and activities. Their charitable works include donating books to various organizations, such as New York Fire Department Family Crisis Center, Wings to Fly, and Community Substance Abuse Center; and a weekly Be the Star You Are! radio program. A great nonprofit always has a great leader; this holds true especially to Be the Star You Are!; its founder, Cynthia Brian, has devoted her time, effort, and love to reaching out to those in need. You can instantly feel her warmth and contagious optimism when you talk with her; I know, for I was honored to be her radio guest four times. Whenever I support Be the Star You Are! I know that my contributions will go directly to motivating, inspiring, and empowering each woman and youth to become the true star they are!
