Grace Regan - Washington Interview by Olivia Bush Nomination by Dena Regan Photography by Melisha Maxey Issue 35 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Over the past few years I have watched my daughter grow into a very courageous young lady. She has inspired students around her to spread positivity and become involved in random acts of kindness. She is involved with her church as well as getting individuals to join her in that as well. With all the events and incidents happening right now, somehow she was able to find a good thing during it all! Her teachers appreciated it a lot and it made a difference in their lives. Her aim is to reach as many teachers as possible. I cannot believe that she put herself out there like that without a second thought just to make someone else happy!
