I believe that B.R.A.V.E is the opportunity for all of us to stand up, be inclusive, and be kind to everyone around you no matter what, and rather then doubting someone because of their differences, we should celebrate them instead! What makes us different, is what makes us unique, and being involved with MHSA has given me the opportunity to promote this message to so many people!
I chose to join this system, because of this incredible movement! I knew that I would have the such an amazing opportunity to impact so many kids lives! I was beyond blessed to have competed and received the title of Miss South Dakota Jr High, and right after being crowned, I began thinking of ways I could promote BRAVE to the best of my ability, even in these difficult times!
I have recently created a TikTok page, where I will be posting 3 times a week, and educating my viewers on the B.R.A.V.E platform, and how we can put bullying to an end! I felt that this was such a great way to reach out and promote the platform virtually, because of how many kids have access to this app! I cannot wait to start visiting classrooms and speaking to kids in person about the importance of being upstanders rather then a bystander, and to always be kind to one and other!
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!
