Last year when I held the title of Miss New Hampshire High School America I was able to do a BRAVE presentation and we talked about how bullying is everywhere. There were adults who were telling stories of being bullied in adulthood by strangers and even doctors. I think this was an eye opening event for everyone who was involved in the presentation.
This year I have been working on my own platform and I have tried to incorporate BRAVE into it. My platform is for spreading joy to those who may be going through tough times and just need a light to make their day better. I feel BRAVE has taught me how to help those around me no matter your age, size, beliefs and so much more. BRAVE is so much more than an anti bullying campaign, it has helped so many find hope and know it is okay to stand up for yourself and to spread love.
Welcome to the BRAVE Blog, I'm Carly, Miss Houston Collegiate America and I am working together with other titleholders in the MHSA organization to share the message of BRAVE and why it is so important!
