Young Voices was essential in kickstarting my journalism career. From developing my writing skills to the extra exposure, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of Young Voices. As the program grows, I’m impressed by what Young Voices advocates are doing to spread liberty in the U.S. and around the world.
