November marks the four-year anniversary of Express Yourself!â¢ Teen Radio broadcasting on the Voice America Kids Network. 191 new shows have hit the world wide airwaves with talented young people as hosts and reporters. Created and produced by entertainment veteran, Cynthia Brian, Express Yourself!â¢ Teen Radio is a special outreach program of Be the Star You Are!Â® 501 c3Â charity giving youth a voice to be listened to.
In 2011 the program launched with two teen hosts and four reporters. Since that time, thirty two adolescents have joined the STAR Team of hosts and reporters sharing their ideas, expertise, and learning to be adept interviewers. Â They have interviewed best selling authors, TV celebrities, rock stars, Olympians, sport idols, change makers, teen entrepreneurs, business icons, and everyday heroes.
And these kids are winning major national accolades. Two ofÂ the reporters won $15,000 scholarships as Americaâs top teen entrepreneurs of 2015. Others have been featured on major TV shows, won musical competitions, and been accepted to top universities such as Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Stanford, CAL Berkeley, and Pepperdine. These teens are shining brightly.
Each week, a line-up of fascinating guests are interviewed based on a theme from the award winning book, Be the Star You Are!Â® for TEENSÂ at NOON PT on Voice America Kids. Whether itâs friendship, fortitude, happiness, or bullying, the Express Yourself!â¢ stars bring their own views and opinions to the conversation.
Congratulations to Be the Star You Are!Â® 501 c3 charity, Express Yourself!â¢ Teen Radio, and Voice America for achieving this inspirational milestone.
Be the Star You Are!Â®Â is a Top Rated 501 c3 charity dedicated to empowering women, families, and youth through increased literacy and improved positive media messages. Be the Star You Are!Â® grows people. Teens making a difference and shining brightly are definitely something to crow about!
