La’Nyah’s platform is to promote positive thinking and positive self image to combat bullying. She believes that in order to prevent people from harming themselves and others, they have to be encouraged to think positively. She urges kids to stay upbeat and to speak positively everywhere they go. As she says, “You have to love yourself and always remember that people who harm other people with their words or actions do not love themselves enough.”

La’Nyah and her mother have raised most of the money needed for their competition but they still need a tiny bit. If you would like to donate to a very worthy young lady please visit:
