21 Lynnfield High School Students letting us know "Why they Stay Above the Influence"
Presentation of Youth Focus Group Results
Hi, my name is Evyenia Georges! I am a sophomore at Lynnfield High School. When I grow up, I hope to go into a profession that involves math and science. I have lived in Lynnfield for thirteen years. One of my favorite things about living in Lynnfield is how small the community is and how close-knit the people are. Being a part of the A Healthy Lynnfield Youth Council is important because I see the impact that we can have on our community. In the Youth Council, we can work to promote awareness about substance misuse to our fellow students. I believe that our work can be more successful in the youth when it is promoted by students. We must create a message for all students that will stick with them for life. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts”. This quote stands out to me because I believe that each day is like a new sheet of paper with new opportunities to succeed.

Why is being a part of the Youth Council important to me: Being a part of the Youth Council is important to me because I am passionate about advocating for substance abuse prevention and bettering the mental health of my community.
