“Many people empowered me to be who I am. With BYkids now I have the opportunity to do the same with a young person using the art of storytelling, my passion, and I can’t think of a more meaningful mission. Young people are key. Their aspirations and achievements will shape the future. The act of telling one’s story is, itself, an act of self-empowerment. But it can also inspire and change others by watching real stories of overcoming struggles with fear, with lapses of confidence, or with cultural norms. Sharing stories of personal triumph has the potential to give hope, to inspire, to improve lives and that’s what the world needs more than ever. That’s why I’m thrilled to be part of the BYkids team.”
