As one of the youth advisory board members of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, we get to help out with her genius Born Brave Bus tour program. Before each Lady Gaga concert, there is an area set up outside for young people in the community to learn about clubs, activities, and mentoring groups nearby. I admire how much Lady Gaga cares about getting her fans involved with their community. This Born Brave Bus program features tents that showcase community organizations, a fun tour bus that people get to go inside and sign their names on the wall, and free food! Afterwards, the other advisory board members and I went to the concert!
Enjoying live performances from Taylor Swift, Pink, Green Day, Alicia Keys, and many more, the MTV VMAs this year was such a well-produced and entertaining event! I attended the event along with 2 other members of the Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation’s Youth Advisory Board. The Foundation’s is “committed to connecting young people in SAFE ways and empowering them with SKILLS and OPPORTUNITIES that will inspire them to create a kinder and braver world.”
Today, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation officially announced its Youth Advisory Board! Along with 23 other young people on the board, I am thrilled to help the foundation accomplish its mission of Empowering Youth and Inspiring Bravery. I had the opportunity to spend 3 days with the 23 fellow youth board members at the foundation summit in Los Angeles earlier this month. The experiences they shared of their obstacles and how they fought through them or are still fighting were some of the most inspiring stories I’ve ever heard. Working with this youth board this year, I am confident we will accomplish major milestones in helping young people be kinder and braver.
Support individuality and kindness. Join the Born Brave Nation.
