Meet a Youth Leader

I’m Determined State Youth Leaders are a diverse, energetic, creative, and passionate group of young adults.

I’m Determined is what gave me a voice and taught me whatever I want to do, I have to be self-determined and advocate for myself. Advocating for myself has helped me advocate for other people.

I’ve had a life-changing experience with I’m Determined. The learning tools prepared me to be life-ready in college and the workforce. I strongly recommend to start using these tools early to give students a sense of autonomy in their education. The lifelong friendships that I have developed here at I’m Determined will also be cherished for a lifetime!

Determination is not a skill that can be mastered, it’s an aspect of life that we have to strive for everyday; within everything we do.
