My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Be The Star You Are Inc, Moraga, CA, USA
I have been working the Be The Star You Are for almost 8 years, and I am forever grateful for the experiences I gained while volunteering with this nonprofit. Founder, Cynthia Brian, has served as a mentor to me since I was 15 years old and first delving into the world of broadcast journalism. Through BTSYA’s radio program, “Express Yourself! Teen Radio,” I was able to gain hands-on experience with writing segments and recording weekly. Even today, I continue to serve as a part-time host and field reporter with my segment, “The Gift of Giving”. I have interviewed countless inspiring individuals, including authors, musicians, activists, war veterans and more. If I weren’t a host with BTSYA’s Express Yourself! Teen Radio, then I would never get to have these conversations.
In addition to radio, I became a published author through Be The Star You Are. I have two chapters published in Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers: Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World. This was an absolute dream come true! BTSYA’s programming has provided an abundance of creative outlets, and I am filled with gratitude for the opportunities I have received through this organization. Thank you to Cynthia Brian for founding this organization, and for continuing to support me in my endeavors!
