  1. i just got an award for becoming the first girl student council president at m school, i have a 3.8 grade point average and I made my own business that just earned 100 dollars this weak.

  2. Love

  6. I know positive role models are good but instead of it being a celebrity all the time why not do a regular girl who is a positive role model.

  7. My daughter, 15 y/o Sage Donnelly, just won the Jr. World Freestyle Kayak Championships in Ottawa, Canada, and also placed 6th overall in the Pan American Games in Kayak Slalom. This spring, she competed in the Jr. World Slalom Canoe and Kayak Championships where she placed 12th in Canoe, and also competed in the Payette River Games where she was 5th in Stand Up Paddleboard. All this-on top of being a type 1 diabetic with celiac and thyroid disease…and born and raised a vegetarian! We are trying to get the message out that a diagnosis should not be seen as an obstacle, but a challenge to overcome. I was hoping you would be interested in doing a story on her as she prepares for the 2016 kayaking season, including the US Olympic Team Trials, Sr. World Cups in Slalom, and the Jr. World Slalom Championships in Krakow, Poland.

    Here are some links to follow her –





    Thank you,
