IMAGINE YOUNG LEADERS COUNCIL
My name is Cassidy and I am a college student. I have been fortunate enough to be a part of Imagine Fest since the beginning. As a founding member of the Young Leaders Council, being able to help Unlikely Heroes and all the children around the world has been such an honor and I look forward to what is to come.
Hi, my name is Sheridan and I am a high school student. I have been a part of Imagine Fest since the start. Working along-side my sister, Cassidy, I was the youngest member of the Young Leaders Council. This gave me the opportunity to work with Unlikely Heroes from a different age group’s perspective. I am grateful to be able to help such a deserving cause with the amazing work they do.
Hi, I’m Kim. I am currently part of two big movements. One focuses on food insecure neighborhoods and people, the other one is on ending sex trafficking. I have also participated in a school mission trip where we visited a Native American Reservation and made ourselves available to help them. I have always wanted to take action on issues in my community and Young Leaders Council is a great step in this direction.
Hello! My name is Sydney. Learning about the beautiful work Unlikely Heroes does to stop sex trafficking, and how widespread Sex Trafficking is, I knew I had to get involved. Not only have I connected with the other girls in the Young Leaders Council, but together we’ve grown and experienced the joy of working with Unlikely Heroes to do something selfless for those who deserve and need the support. Being able to participate in Imagine fest and work with Unlikely Heroes has shown me the strength of girls in much worse situations than I will likely ever be in. This inspires me to help make a difference and be appreciative of all I have.
My name is Tasha. I am 14 and a freshman in high school. This is my second year as a member of the the Young Leaders Council. Being part of the Imagine family has made me aware of what is going on in the world with kids my age. Unlikely Heroes is an incredible organization that saves kids trapped in sex slavery. I had such an amazing childhood and a bright future to look forward to. I can't imagine the kids suffering and just hoping they have one more day to live. It breaks my heart. Knowing I can help even one of them know freedom again encourages me to start making a difference. I have always wanted to help my community and this is a great way to start. It is teaching me how to be grateful for what I have and to live every moment like it's my last. Every child deserves to experience the carefree joys of youth knowing they are safe and loved.
Hi, I’m Siena. I am a freshman in high school, and this is my second year working with Imagine Fest and our powerhouse of a young leaders council. I love working with other teenagers, who are all as passionate about saving children from sex trafficking as I am, to create a uniquely inspirational festival that rallies our communities toward a cause of paramount importance. Working with Natalie and this group has taught me leadership and listening skills, and has given me a sense of purpose. I cannot wait for this year’s festival!
My name is Skylar and I am a nineteen year old college freshman. I joined the Young Leaders Council last year as a high school senior. This year I am both a member of the Council as well as a mentor for the younger girls. Through this experience I've begun to make connections with new people through the cause we are all so passionate about. Before Imagine Fest began, I wasn’t aware of Unlikely Heroes and the amazing work they do in order to prevent the slavery continuing in our world today. Children my age and younger are being forced into a world no one should ever have to endure. I can only be proud that I and so many others are working to stop this.
Hi. I’m Mai, and I’m a passionate high school activist. I attend high school and first started working in our community at a young age. By donating my birthday gifts to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles at age 8, I was able to help bring smiles to children's faces. Later I joined Pacer’s Los Angeles Youth Advisory Board, and now hold the position of President there. This year I joined the Young Leaders Council in hopes of learning about more people and helping those who really need it.
Hi my name is Alexa. I became a member of the Young Leaders Council because I really care about all of the causes we support. When I’m not at the Young Leader meetings I like to watch hockey and get together with my friends. I am also a part of my school’s mock trial team! I hope to someday work as a psychologist because I love helping people and I want to make a difference in people’s lives.
Hi my name is Rochelle. I became a member of the Young Leaders Council because I am passionate about helping my community. When I’m not at the Young Leader meetings I like to hang out with friends and dance. I am also a part of an aerial team at school! I hope to someday work in criminal justice and be a part of the Go Green Project so I can share my passion for justice with the world!
I’m Charissa. The reason I chose to join the Young Leaders Council is because it’s the right thing to do. I don’t need recognition for being a “good” person. I simply found out about Unlikely Heroes and knew I needed to help. And I am very thankful for the opportunity to do so.
