Outstanding Youth for June 2018, “Kyyanna Brown”

Outstanding Youth, “Kyyanna Brown”

We are proud to introduce Ms. Kyyanna Brown, a 16-year-old young lady from St. Louis, Mo.  She is being nominated and featured for her amazing strength and resiliency as a true overcomer.  As shared by her mentor, she has overcome identity issues, depression and trouble in school to now a top performing student and aspiring beautician.

She is an active member in the 20th ward and spends a lot of her free time volunteering and acting as a co-host to Dasha Kennedy/mentor and Founder of “The Broke Black Girl.”  She volunteers at local clothing drives, food drives, and diaper drives. Her younger bother was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and Kyyanna stepped up to help her mother, who has seven children, by spending time with her brother at the hospital while her mother took care of her siblings. At such a young age Kyyanna is active and vocal regarding community issues and speaking up concerning the rights of young African American women.

Her continued display of resilience and strength as a teenager definitely deserves recognition for a job well done. Kyyanna could be doing many other things with her life and like most young adults she has all of wrong things at her disposal but she is determined to make positive choices,  push forward and make a way for the young women that look up to her.  She realizes that others are watching her actions as an example for them to follow;  which is characteristics of a future leader.

Help us Celebrate this Outstanding young woman who definitely deserves to be recognized!

Remember, we pray for all our children sometimes even more for those who may be struggling; however, we can’t forget the importance of motivating and empowering those that despite their circumstances are putting their best foot forward and making great strides by making positive choices. Peer pressure is real and that is why St. Louis Prayer Project, Inc. wants to feature “Outstanding Youth” that serve as role models for their peers by choosing right over wrong.  Making intentional positive choices is the new “Cool.”
