Sponsor Spotlight – Carolyn Potter

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS:

Ambitious, compassionate, and friendly

HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED WITH REBEL?

A few students approached me and asked if I wanted to be a sponsor. They told me more about the group, and I quickly realized how much I wanted to be a part of it. I always struggled with body image in my teenage years, so I think it’s awesome that REbeL is here to spread awareness of body image issues.

Carolyn_PotterWHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE REBEL ACTIVITY OR EVENT?

There are too many to list! The walk is always a fun event, but I actually enjoy our weekly meetings more than anything. These meetings are where I really get to know the students and listen to them discuss the issues they are facing and how we can better spread REbeL’s message.

HOW IS REBEL IMPLEMENTING CHANGE?

REbeL is changing the atmosphere of BVNW into a more positive place in my opinion. I believe that Northwest is full of great students, and I am hopeful that REbeL is helping each and every one of them see how wonderful they are.


WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTY-FULL?

I am beauty-full because of my optimistic outlook in life and my ultimate belief that there is good in everyone.

I LOVE THAT I CAN BE: a role model for the people around me.

MY HOPE FOR THE TEENS WE WORK WITH IS THAT THEY CAN BE: An example of how to love yourself for who you are instead of what you look like .

AS I HAVE GROWN OLDER, I HAVE LEARNED TO BE:  More confident in who I am as an individual.

I THINK OUR WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF WE COULD ALL BE: More accepting of ourselves and others just as we are.
