With all of the violence going on around the world and in our communities, it can be difficult for our youth to focus on the positives. As violence becomes a bigger issue each and every day, there has to be something to motivate our youth, as they are the future. Hello how are you ? My name is Aaliyah Stewart . I am 19 years old ! My freshmen year I started a 501C3 organization in honor of my two brothers That were killed to gun violence.Along with my foundation I have a movement called #IAMTHEM which means I am my youth letting them know no matter what you go through or where you come from you have potential ! While sharing my story through motivational speaking Iamthem.org. I am opening a youth center in my home town of Gary , IN to help decrease and bring awareness to the gun violence in my community ! I love to share with young people about how losing a loved one to gun violence can be turned positive .
