Makayla is a 5-1-8 teen ambassador for Colorado based nonprofit, Robbie's Hope. A nationwide movement committed to ending teen suicide and bringing mental health awareness to their friends, schools and communities.
Teenagers are often blamed, overlooked and under valued. Robbie's Hope was started to bring the voices of teenagers to other teenagers. To spread awareness amongst the youth, by allowing peers to talk to their peers.
By sharing resources and amplifying the voices of the youth, it provides a purpose and a feeling of being less alone. The teenagers today are far more insightful and empathetic. These teens are further along than we were.
Need proof that the internet isn't all bad? Just follow these ambassadors and listen to what they have to say. Be open and connect with new voices. You will learn about yourself. But, you need to be willing.

Until next week be Well, be Safe, be ABOVE
