Would you recommend Be the Star You Are?

Working with Cynthia Brian for Be the Star You Are has been one of the best opportunities and decisions of my life. As a reporter and host of Express Yourself for Teens, I have been able to expand my skills as a writer and a speaker. With the world constantly changing and advancing, people are becoming busier and busier. As a result, we often find less time to read and write for entertainment or take a moment to reflect on the positive aspects of life. After entering high school, reading and writing for personal enjoyment fell lower and lower on my list of priorities. I can confidently say that volunteering for Be the Star You Are has reminded me of the importance and joy of positive messages and has rekindled my love for reading and writing. Be the Star You Are promotes positive media and literacy in such an inspirational and memorable way that it not only impacts its listeners and readers, but is also a transformative experience for its volunteers.

I highly recommend ?Be The Star You Are!? and give it a very enthusiastic 5 stars! I have volunteered for other organizations, and can honestly say that BTSYA surpasses them all for its contributions and what it has meant to me as a volunteer. I have had the exciting and rewarding experience to volunteer as a reporter for the teen radio show ?Express Yourself? and report on numerous topics that are interesting and inspiring to teens. I strongly support the organization’s life-changing message to ?Read, Lead, Succeed!? and I love the fact that I am helping to provide a positive and empowering message to teens across the country and beyond! BTSYA does so many things, such as publishing inspirational books under the same name, for which I am so proud to have contributed a chapter in its most recent edition. This year it ran the Hurricane Matthew Relief Project, donating books to the affected area. I can't say enough wonderful things about this organization and what it means to me!

"Be The Star You Are!" is an incredible organization. Cynthia Brian has created such an amazing program through positivity, real-world/true-to-life information, and guidance for young people. Her organization helps young people steer through growing up and allowing them to be the best version of themselves. As a firefighter working in Watts (Los Angeles), California, I know how important it is for young people to have direction, mentors, and support throughout their lives. This charity is the exact type of program that every community needs; and, through the widespread outreach of the "Be The Star You Are!" organization, Cynthia Brian is able to affect development all over the world. Truly inspirational!

Out of the many organizations I've encountered in college and high school, few have evoked the same level of energy and passion as BTSYA. Its mission resounds in numerous communities across the nation. I urge everyone to volunteer--it's so rewarding to see the impact that you make, not to mention how delightful it is to work with Cynthia Brian (founder)!
