About the B-YOU with ELLA Hour!
In her B-YOU with Ella Hour, Ella joins host and founder Sean Mulroney to discuss topics to help guide teens to B-POSITIVE, B-YOURSELF, and B-SILLY (read more about Sean Mulroney and Teens of America/TOA below). Topics such as being true to you, staying positive and empowered, and, of course, the importance of staying silly!
During Ella’s show, her goal is to bring laughter, advice, and positivity to a stressed world. Through jokes, facts, empowering quotes, advice, and interviews with experts, authors, positive role models, teen celebrities, and even teens struggling with issues, Ella brings attention to subjects important to the well-being of teens every day … with powerful tips to guide them through the maze that is today’s world.
Theme for this show is “B-Motivated!” Ella inspires you to take action to follow your dreams, and her special guests, academic superstar Cassandra Hsiao and teen author Anna Caltabiano, offer advice and tips to make dreams come true! LISTEN HERE
Not only has 17-year-old Cassandra Hsiao been accepted to all eight Ivy League colleges, she is BYOU Magazine’s go-to girl for reporting at Hollywood red carpet events and movie premieres. But on-location reporting for multiple media outlets is just a sliver of the talent of this remarkable young woman. Cassandra maintained a 4.6 GPA, scored a near perfect on her SATs and ACTS, and has received numerous awards, including the very prestigious “Gracie Award” presented annually by the Alliance for Women In Media Foundation. Her poetry, fiction, memoirs and plays have been nationally recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and the National YoungArts Foundation. She was chosen as a finalist for national playwriting competitions held by Writopia Labs, Princeton University, and YouthPLAYS.
Ella’s second guest is Anna Caltabiano, the twenty year-old author of four books including All That is Red and The Seventh Miss Hatfield. She was born in British colonial Hong Kong and educated in Mandarin Chinese schools before moving to California. Now a student in Brown University’s eight-year medical program, Anna continues to pursue her interest in healing through the science of medicine and the power of narrative. Her writing reflects her concerns for her own generation as it seeks out salvation, meaning, and companionship in online communities, with pop culture as its shared language. In addition to her novels, Anna is a columnist for the Huffington Post, and has appeared in various media, such as The Guardian, The Marie Show, Seventeen Magazine, and of course, BYOU Magazine!

About Teens of America Radio Network
Teens of America (TOA) is dedicated to encourage, educate, and equip teens with the necessary tools to break the chains of negative choices. This non-profit organization wants to show teens that there are lots of positive resources that are available to them and we can always make positive choices every day.
Not many shows can make the claim that they actually save lives. Teens of America (TOA) does just that. We lose 8 teens a day as a result of alcohol or drug related accidents, another 7 teens a day die through weapon related accidents and homicide, and 6 teens a day through suicide (a permanent solution to a temporary problem). When will these assaults on our youth end? Host and founder, Sean Mulroney, reaches teens and parents. How? He has reformatted the show, assembling an amazing team of teen co-hosts (like Ella and Cassi!), who talk WITH and on behalf of teens rather than talking AT them.
The result? A phenomenon that attracts a teen audience from 26 countries, with about 1k downloads of their show weekly on iTunes and Stitcher. Currently the show can be heard via radio on WXZY & WMMR in Pennsylvania and WGGH in Illinois, and the show is also slated for national syndication on radio stations around the world.
