Meet #JrP4E

Amani Weather

School: Warren Center High School, Sophomore

"Being a P4E Jr. Ambassador appeals to me because I am always looking for ways to improve the community, and what better way than to inform people about a deadly disease that is very common."

Danaasia Grundy

School: Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School, Sophomore

"I personally have many connections to breast cancer because it runs in my family, multiple family members have had it. My mom is the closest person to me that has had breast cancer. When I was two years old my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now that I am fifteen, I understand why cancer is such a big deal now; I understand the severity of the disease and how it is not an easy thing. I want more people in the community to more about breast cancer in general, how it affects men and women, especially African American women."

School: Arsenal Technical High School, Senior

"This will be a new experience, and help me develop as a person. If there were one thing I could change in the world, it would be the education system."

Jerrell Lewis

School: Arsenal Technical High School, Senior

"Being a Pink-4-Ever Ambassador appeals to me because I lost people really close to me to breast cancer. I want to raise awareness for it and really be a voice for those who cannot and help the ones who really need it. I look forward to supporting the mission as a whole. I want to serve my community by helping them have a broader view of the world."

Kharee Hoggs

School: University High School, Junior

"This organization appeals to me because of the life skills it helps to develop. I find it intriguing that I can do one of my favorite activities - volunteering - while also being conditioned to become a better leader, organizer, and public speaker."

Kathaleen Arellano

School: Arsenal Technical High School, Senior

"It appeals to me because I'm very close to my aunt who had breast cancer 4 years ago and I want to show her and other survivors of breast cancer my support.
If there were anything I would change about my community, it would be to clean up all the litter to create a better environment."

Nikya Thomas

School: Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School, Senior

"I am interested in advocating for health care and educating others about certain health issues and how to reduce the risk for being affected by any illness, especially if it is hereditary. I am also interested in learning more about breast cancer and informing the community about how to reduce the risk for getting any kind of cancer. Along with educating myself and others, I love how P4E Inc. creates a support system. All illnesses have many psychological effects on people, so it is important to create a space where people can vent, get advice, and know that there are people rooting for and fighting with them. My career goal is to become an OB/GYN where I will work to reduce the infant mortality rate which is highest for African American babies."

Jasmin Cheairs

School: Ball State University, Sophomore

"I would like to be a P4E Jr. Ambassador because knowing people that have dealt with breast cancer causes me to want to share awareness about the topic and get people informed. This organization holds a special place in my heart due to this fact. When you can help someone become more informed about what is going on in their body and other bodies in general you can in-turn help save a life. When it comes to spreading awareness, this can be done in a couple different ways. From hosting events around campus to just setting up a booth in the Atrium and sitting there for a couple hours engaging with people as they pass by."

Alexis Taylor

School: Indiana University -Bloomington, Junior

"Alexis has seen up close and person the toll breast cancer takes on the lives of individuals and their families, while losing an aunt and watching another fight and survive the disease she refers to as a 'beast.' She wants to be a part of the solution by educating and empowering others to have courage to stand and fight for a cure."

Adrian Morgan

School: Ben Davis High School, Junior

"It is a way for me to give back to the community and spread awareness about breast cancer."

NyAsia Moore

School: North Central High School, Senior

"I think it’s important that women, especially African American women, and men are aware of the effects of breast cancer, how to prevent it, and be educated on the topic in order to be in control of their health."
