What made you want to join The 84 Movement? How did you first learn about The 84?
I wanted to join The 84 Movement initially because I learned that I could miss a day of school for Kick Butts Day
and hang out with all my friends. Isn’t that funny? Who knew that my version of a skip day could spark my lifelong
passion for public health? After seeing the youth from the Statewide Leadership Team talk that year I felted moved.
This story always makes me smile, because the Statewide Leaders of 2016 really impacted the way I view the tobacco
industry, and now I’m proud to be one of the people who stand up on stage at Kick Butts Day and help other youth feel empowered to make change too!
