“I will be attending my dream school, Emory University, and I want to thank MADD because I couldn't have done it without the help of the National Teen Influencer Group. The Group not only allows me to spread positive influence further but also gave me a chance to show Emory that I can make change in their community as well. Thank you for all the wonderful opportunities you provide youth like me!” – Josselyn G.
