Healing the world one teen at a time
We believe that through inspiration and education, the upcoming generation can receive the tools and motivation to change the world for the better. We believe that given the correct resources, parents can foster open communication, teach resiliency, and live a more connected life with their kids. We know that a peer perspective can have a great effect on teenagers today.
"I draw my motivation to spread light from my many years spent in the dark. In my early elementary years I was bullied for my size and my speech impediment. This led me to believe that I wasn't enough. After being exposed to pornography and getting several different social media platforms, I slowly became a victim of addiction and self-hate.
I drove myself far away from everyone that I love and found myself dealing with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. After creating a suicide plan, my parents found out about everything that was happening and it created a pivot point in my life. On this day, April 23, 2018, my mom grabbed my face and said "Smith, I will fight for you but you have to fight for yourself first." So I did.
I now spend my time travelling and speaking to schools and youth groups about the harmful effects of social media and pornography and inspire them to live a life beyond their screens. I give parents the resources that they need to parent with confidence in a digital era. This mission of mine is needed and it will never end."
